Overview
More
Since the XIth century, when the name of the lords of Rambures appears for the first time, their fortress is watching the hearth of the Vimeu, close to the border of Norman. During one thousand years, three castles were built under the order of the same family. The construction of the present castle began between the ending of the XIVth and the beginning of the XVth century, in the background of the one hundred years war. Today, it represents a rare example of the military architecture from the XVth. Indeed, even after six hundred years, it keeps his original appearance. We suppose that it was David of Rambures, a Shakespearian hero, “Great Master of the crossbows” in the French army, who constructed the castle.

A reasonably priced family day out. The kids really enjoyed the games in the grounds. The rose gardens were beautiful. Our guide was excellent and made a real effort to translate everything into English for us. Shame the cafe wasn’t open.

It was a wonderful view, seeing the place for the first time as you go through the front gates, and even better when you are walking around the park/gardens and view it from different angles.

This place was wonderful! With my historian goggles on, it was a fascinating composition of military styles and techniques that were pretty much obsolete by the time the place was finished due to the advent of iron cannonballs. You could almost sense the architect trying...More
