Château de Beaumesnil
Nicknamed the "Norman Versailles", this Baroque-style Louis XIII château sports an ornate façade, embellished with Florentine motifs. Inside note the monumental staircase and the splendid collection of bound books dating from the 17C-18C in the Museum of Bookbinding. The splendid park has retained its original 17C layout. A boxwood maze now occupies the former moat around its feudal keep.
