Small, medieval castle. Interesting to see from the outside, since it's actually from 12 century. There is the exposition inside, but very small (two rooms) and not really worth it. (Open from 2pm on Sun). You can walk along the river near the castle, which gives nice view.

It's quite interesting at how the town of Nemours grew and was built around the fortified castle / chateau. Rather tall with towers and high walls, this chateau was made for warfare and it experienced its share, and more. Nice views of town from the available wall spaces. Fun

Don't expect anything fantastic: this is just a simple fortress with an expo area inside. The history dating all the way back to the 12th century is interesting and the exterior is impressive. Tip: stop here if you need a break on the highway and maybe combine with lunch in town.
