  1. History of the castle
  2. Photo Gallery

The castle of Moulineaux was built towards XIe and XIIe century. No certainty as for the existence of a Duke of Normandy, called Comma moth. It could be a question of Robert-the-Splendid, duke of Normandy (1010-1035) and father of William the Conqueror. Only certainty of royal stay, that of Richard Heart-of-Lion, king d' Angleterre. The Castle was destroyed by his brother Jean Without-Ground during his fight against the king of France Philippe-Auguste. Statement thereafter, rouennais them destroyed the turns of the castle during the One hundred year old War to prevent the English from strengthening itself there. A museum of wax characters shelters scenes of the life of Comma moth. A counterpart of the royal drakkar of Asenberg is exposed in a vault of Norwegian inspiration.
