About Les Andelys

Les Andelys Chateau Galliard, France

Set along the banks of the Seine, this small town is best known for the imposing castle overlooking the city. Built in 1196 by Richard the Lionheart of England, who was also Duke of Normandy, Château Gaillard is considered the most dramatic sight anywhere along the Seine between the coast and Paris. The strongest and most magnificent castle of its age, it guarded the Seine River Valley approach to Normandy.
