Feudal castle built between the 11th and 15th centuries. Medieval period vestiges include the enclosure (12th - 13th century), two fine vaulted rooms (12th century), the square tower (14th century) and a high octagonal tower (15th century). A Renaissance turret stands alongside the main building. The 17th century stables form a fine ensemble within the courtyard.
During the Second World War, from June to July 1944, the BBC took up residence in the square tower to broadcast information on the D-Day Landings.
Guided tour in French or English: 45 minutes.

A mighty medieval fortress, Creully’s chateau is well worth a visit, if only to admire its 12th century lower hall, one of the few remaining examples of Roman architecture, and its 17th century stables. At the time of the D-Day Landings, Creully housed the first BBC radio transmitter (there is a small radio museum paying tribute to this). The commune acquired the building in 1946.
