The medieval castle at Gratot in Normandy
The chateau at Gratot was built in the 14th century. It was abandoned in the early 20th century although a restoration project is currently underway. You can climb to the top of both of these towers although the worn stone steps are testament to the many people who have climbed them over the centuries.
The chateau is open every day from 10am until 7pm and is just north of Coutances. Further information at www.chateaugratot.com
