Crèvecœur Castle



Located between Caen and Lisieux, Crèvecoeur Castle in Crèvecoeur-en-Auge is a perfectly preserved medieval site. Come and discover 10 centuries of history in one of Normandy's oldest castle enclosures.

The medieval Crèvecoeur Castle is a unique example of a small and remarkably well-preserved seigniory. Surrounded by a moat, its original outline remains to this day: the residential manor, protected by a group of fortifications, the chapel and half-timbered farm buildings in the lower courtyard. Exhibitions offer an insight into rural life in the Middle Ages, half-timbered architecture and a historic narration of the fascinating story of the Schlumberger brothers. Unaccompanied tour time: 1 hour 30 minutes. Event programme (may be subject to modification): ‘La Nuit des Musées / Pierres en Lumières’ (Museum night/Stonework illuminations): 16th May 2020 from 8pm; ‘Chevaliers !’ (Knights!): 16th & 17th May 2020; ‘Le Moyen Âge en Fête’ (Middle Ages Festival): 10th to 29th July 2020, ‘Les Médiévales’ (Medieval Fair): 2nd to 9th August 2020; ‘La Fête des Traditions’ (Traditions Fair): 19th & 20th September 2020.
