An old fortress. The stories of what happened here during the Middle Ages are of real interest. So are the tales of both World Wars. It is possible to climb up the Great Tower all the way to the top. And throughout the building, rooms have been set up for you to might believe Henry the Second is coming to tea. This is a place whose best stories involve the tower and the tunnels. The underground passages were of special use during the Second World War. Deep within the secret parts of these cliffs naval officers orchestrated evacuations from France and beyond, the wounded were treated, and every measure was taken to prevent invasion. This is a place that resounds with adventure, danger derring-do and noble deeds.
