Its ruins tower above the village and offer an unbeatable view of the surrounding area. From its natural promontory, with broad pits splitting the valley, the Château d’Arques-la-Bataille alone contains 900 years of history made up of battles and revivals. Built in the early 12th century, it was attacked by William the Conqueror and Charles the Bold, received François I and witnessed the victory of Henri IV, to name but a few of its events… It was remodelled on several occasions before collapsing after the Second World War but never lost its spirit, which can still be felt today in every one of its stones.
