William-the-Conqueror's Castle

Recommended
The impressive castle dominates this aptly named town (falaise means cliff) from a high crag. As you explore the medieval compound (12C-13C), characteristic of Anglo-Norman keep-palaces then the large 12C keep, don't forget that it was here that the greatest Norman ever, William the Conqueror, was born. The tour-show deploys a host of modern techniques to take visitors on a journey through the Middle Ages.
