Still Standing
Oct 2019
This is our first stop when we walked up from the ship. A simple tower; but it has been there since the 1100s. This little town certainly do not have something that is unique; however, there are few buildings, and its local church, are worth to explore for their workmanship.

5 minutes will see it "Done"!

A good photo opportunity but that's about all. Set in small gardens with current building works in progress so not particularly scenic. What you see is what you get. There is no access to the tower and no information boards about the tower.

Walled in city
Aug 2018 • Friends
Vernon was a protected, walled city along the Seine river. This tower is a beautiful souvenir of past history.

Really old tower
Apr 2018 • Couples
As we wandered around the town, our guide pointed out this tower. The tower is all that remains of the original Vernon castle that had been built in the early 1100s. This tower was known as "the keep" used for defense purposes. You can see the slits in the walls so that arrows could be shot at any enemies. It was a beautiful day when we were there so the many colorful flags at the top were blowing around and it made a nice sight.

It's Really Old!
Oct 2017 • Couples
This tower is a remnant of an ancient Vernon castle dating back to the 12th century! You cannot go in it and a small plaza with a fountain was built next to it. It's nice that it has survived all these centuries.

As everything that I have seen in Vernon...Useless, drab, grey and sad... Really disappointing. It is a tower, clearly remade.

Nice tower, remainder of an ancient fortress
Apr 2017 • Couples
Nice tower, remainder of an ancient fortress, visible only externally. Nowadays it is surrounded by civil buildings and houses. In the same street one can see some nice medieval houses with wooden structure.

nice tower from far away

Im not sure I would walk all the way to see this tower from city center, take your car. From far away you can also see it and its just as impressive.

Walking tour
Aug 2016 • Couples
We walked around the watch tower and the attached medieval protective walks. The history is interesting as this is connected to Richard the Lion Hearted, but you can't go inside. Just worth walking by.....

Interesting Tower
May 2015 • Friends
Amazing this tower still stands over the years. The gardens nearby in the park is very nice. You can see the tower from afar, good locator. The tower was not open the day were we there.
