Le Château de la Roche-Guyon
A unique architectural ensemble in the Ile-de-France Region!
Built right beside a limestone cliff above the Seine, this ensemble bears witness to ten centuries of developments. Discoveries to make include early habitations dug into the rock, the 12th-century feudal keep, 18th-century stables, an Enlightenment kitchen garden, state rooms, plus the gun positions ordered by Rommel in World War II, the Nazi commander based here for a time. Since 2019, the outbuildings dug into the cliff-face have become an exhibition space entitled Nature Seine et Vexin, putting to the fore the Seine Valley’s landscapes and natural riches.
