Les Comtes d'Evreux
Vallée de Seine
From the medieval remains of the Saint-Denis Fountain to the industrial town of Notre Dame de Gravenchon, this hiking trail will take you on a journey through time.
In the footsteps of the Count Archbishop. At the entrance to the Fontaineval valley, at Notre-Dame-de-Gravenchon, the remains of the fortified enclosure and the feudal mound of wood in the Park facing it still stand guard. Sentinels erected by the Counts of Evreux, relatives of the Dukes of Normandy, they were part of the protection of a vast forest estate extending along the Seine from Lillebonne to the Jumièges loop. At the time of Count Robert, also Archbishop of Rouen, in the 11th century, there was a state-owned manor house which was followed by castles, notably the 12th and 15th century stone one, whose remains can be seen restored as well as the chapel.
