Landmarks and Historic Buildings

The 15th century Château de Vascoeuil is just 30 minutes from Rouen and has much to see in the beautiful château itself, the museum within its walls and the wonderful sculpture park in the gardens. A noble house built after the Hundred Years War, the château hosts the museum of Jules Michelet, dedicated to the famous French historian, in one of its outbuildings. 

Wander around the grounds of the estate, through the typically French gardens, to uncover the sculptures that have been placed amongst the beautiful trees and plants. It is a great place to spend the day with the family.
