The castle's history
This fortified building, which is said to date back to the VIIIth century, was made famous by Godefroid, leader of the first crusade (1096) and Advocate of the Holy Sepulchre. It was used as a military base until 1830 and was later reworked by Vauban, Louis XIV's famous architect, to be fitted with heavy artillery for the wars to come.
You can combine your visit with the nearby Archéoscope Godefroid de Bouillon and Ducal Museum.
