A Franco-British history
In the Middle Ages, the fortress defended the Cotentin Peninsula on the edge of the wetland that separates it from the mainland.
In the XI-XII th century, the feudal clod became important during the one hundred years war. Geoffroy d’Harcourt in 1346 conspired against Philippe de Valois and went to England to convince Edward III to go to Normandy.
Louis XIV in 1682 established a hospice and a prison.
In 1944 during the landing in Normandy, the castle was hit by several bombs.
The hospice within the castle was completely rebuilt after the war. It was removed in 1996.
Tours of the castle are on offer. For more information visit the tourist office of Cotentin.
