A castle with a chequered history
Offering wide views down over the Seine, the Château Robert le Diable has had a tumultuous past. The original fort is said to have been ordered by Richard the Lionheart, but the castle was repeatedly destroyed, then rebuilt. The building you see today dates back to the start of the 20th century. Acquired by Rouen Métropole in 2007, the site has been undergoing a major restoration campaign. The surrounds are accessible to members of the public and events are regularly staged here.
