Château de Sainte-Suzanne was a property of the lords of Beaumont, viscounts of Maine, and was built in the 11th century. The most famous event of castle was when it succesfully repelled the conquer attempt of William the Conqueror in 1083-1086.
Installed on a rocky outcrop dominating the Erve valley, the Château de Sainte-Suzanne consists of a triangular courtyard made up of eleven round and square towers, a moat separating it from the medieval town or even a quadrangular keep with three levels near the drawbridge.
As for the dwelling, it reveals an architecture typical of the Henri IV period, at the transition between the Renaissance and the Classical, with a steep roof made of slates from Angers, a facade with bays or even pediments covering the skylights.
La Hougue Bie is a Neolithic ritual site which was in use around 3500 BC. Hougue is a Jèrriais/Norman language word meaning a \'mound\' and comes from the Old Norse word haugr. The site consists of 18.6m long passage chamber covered by a 12.2m high mound. The site was first excavated in 1925 by the Société Jersiaise. Fragments of twenty vase supports were found along with the scattered remains of at least eight individuals. Gravegoods, mostly pottery, were also present. At some time in the past, the site had evidently been entered and ransacked.
In Western Europe, it is one of the largest and best preserved passage graves and the most impressive and best preserved monument of Armorican Passage Grave group. Although they are termed \'passage graves\', they were ceremonial sites, whose function was more similar to churches or cathedrals, where burials were incidental.
