8 reviews of Chateau de Caen

Majestic castle

This majestic castle is in the center of Caen, built on a hill with a great wall that surrounds it, wood initially, but eventually changed to a more durable and effective material, the "stone Caen ". The castle dates back to the Middle Ages, in the eleventh century. Within the walled area there are several other buildings and monuments of the castle. Today we find a large almost square tower of which little is left (much of which was destroyed during the French Industrial Revolution), the Normandy Museum (formerly the home of the governor), the Museum of Fine Arts, the Church of St Georges, "L'Échiquier de Normandie" is now a permanent exhibition hall, and finally a garden in which are still cultivated many vegetables and fruits that formerly served as sustenance for the inhabitants of the castle.
