Caen Castle was built in about 1060 by William the Conqueror. It became the favourite residence for the dukes of Normandy and kings of England. They made it into one of the biggest castles in Europe. Today, it houses the Normandy Museum and the Fine Arts Museum. The information and reception centre in the former Saint George parish church features models, 3D reconstitutions and multimedia animation recounting the castle's history.
