It was built at the 11th century as a residence and a fortress. Indeed, its strategic situation overhanging the valley of the Seine was a good place to prevent fightings.
15m high, the Montjoie tower had preserved its four walls of the origin.
The house of a stringed instrument maker is hided on a side.
