Fodor's Review

The ruins of William the Conqueror's fortress, built in 1060 and sensitively restored after the war, loom on a mound ahead of St-Étienne. The château gardens are a perfect spot for strolling, and the ramparts afford good views of the city. Inside, you'll discover two museums—the Musée des Beaux-Arts and the Musée de Normandie—plus the medieval church of St-Georges,which is used for exhibitions.
