chateau

Recommended
This vast Citadel, built in 11C by William the Conqueror, is set out today as a public garden and has recovered, across the centuries, the attraction that it had at the time of the Conqueror. From its terrace, It offers some attractive views over the town; the castle today houses the Fine Art Museum and the Normandy museum.
