Visit a medieval fortress whose origins go back to the birth of Normandy.

In the heart of Normandy, this masterpiece of medieval architecture, dating back to the 12th and 14th centuries, has been largely remodelled in the 17th century. The castle is still partly surrounded by the fortification wall and bordered by a double ditch. A permanent exhibition will allow you to know more about the site, its history and the story of the Harcourt Family, which is one of the oldest families in France. Harcourt overlooks a splendid arboretum, which was set up in 1802 and is considered as the oldest one in France. It is also a very pleasant park for a walk.

When Rollo, the Viking leader, won the territory that formed Normandy, he gave land to his main comrades-in-arms. He is said to have offered the lordship of Harcourt to his friend Bernard the Dane.
