Built in the early eleventh century, the building filled with circular towers at the corners has been rebuilt in the fourteenth century and completed in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.

Despite serious damage during the First World War, the castle has retained its glory and is regularly used for medieval feasts.

The site continues to be highlighted regularly in the partnership established between the tourist and the Rempart Association.
