Les Andelys (20 km from la Madeleine)

This is one of the most beautiful sites in the Seine valley. The monument the town is famous for is the Château Gaillard, whose ruins overlook the valley. This fortress was built by Richard the Lion Heart, Duke of Normandy and King of England to defend against attacks by Philippe Auguste, king of France. After admiring the magnificent view from Chateau Gaillard, you can stroll around the streets and alleys of Les Andelys, visit the 12th century St. Sauveur church, that of Notre Dame and the Nicolas Poussin museum, named after the French painter, born a few miles from Les Andelys ...

The Norman Vexin country

Not very far from the Andelys, you can go walking in the beautiful Lyons forest and visit the charming little town of Lyons-la-Forêt with its timbered houses squeezed around its old covered market ... then you can go on to the Mortemer Abbey, an old Cistercian abbey nestled in an exceptional environment, and a little further discover the Chateau de Fleury-la-Forêt... ...

Gisors, the little capital of the Norman Vexin, is also worth visiting, mainly the château de la Roche Guyon, where La Rochefoucauld wrote many of his maxims.

Rouen (55 km from la Madeleine)

And then, of course, you cannot miss a visit to Rouen, the capital of Upper Normandy, the “City of a Hundred Spires", one of the most beautiful cities in France ...
