At the top, the view is breathtaking. Even though it may be surprising for some visitors, we definitely are in the Eure Department in Normandy. And it is here, at the foot of Richard the Lionheart's fortress, that there is one of the most beautiful panoramic views over the river Seine.
This? It is Château-Gaillard. It is impossible to miss! Legendary, powerful and fascinating, it has kept watch over the river Seine for more than 800 years. What did it used to be? A watchtower to guard against French invasion. What about its role today? To take us back in time!
Standing on top of the hill in Les Andelys, Château-Gaillard introduces us to its world. Historical, poetic and magical, here emotions get mixed up and overwhelming.
The atmosphere, the colours and the landscape are constantly changing throughout the day. An ideal spot to take pictures with a wow effect, a key site to learn more about the medieval Normandy, an ideally located setting for a romantic sunset, Château-Gaillard is a must-see castle that will not leave you indifferent.
We particularly like: Watching the sun set over one of the most beautiful meanders of the river Seine.
