Bike Touring Highlight
Built by Robert de Mesnieres in the 11th Century, the Chateau de Mesnieres-en-Bray is a beautiful renaissance castle that was completed in the 15th century. The castle has been home to many aristocratic families such as de Boissay and de Fautereau as well as King Louis XV.
During the French revolution, the castle was seized and turned into a prison, holding up to 150 prisoners.
Today, the castle is classed as a historical monument. A huge restoration project was completed in 2014 following a fire which destroyed large parts of the castle.
You can visit the castle everyday during the summer from 2.30pm - 6.30pm. Entrance to the castle and gardens costs €4 per person.
