Located in the heart of the Medieval City, it was rebuilt at the end of the 13th century: it is the best preserved chauvinois castle.
The enclosure, roughly rectangular, consists of high curtain walls, formerly crenellated, flanked by full cylindrical turrets. The entrance, defended by a stunner and a portcullis, has no drawbridge. The rectangular dungeon with flat buttresses, was refitted in the 16th century. On the ground floor is a vaulted prison whose outer door allows open position to block that of the dungeon. Adjoining the donjon, the house, very reworked, houses rooms in which entertainment will be offered to visitors for the summer season 2018.

Opening hours to the public:

The courtyard of Château d'Harcourt is open to visitors from June 1st to September 30th (except animations): from 14h to 18h and in July and August from 10h to 18h according to the program of the animations.

The rooms of the castle will be accessible according to the facilities that must be set up for the summer season 2018
