The history of Crosville family dates from the Norman Age (11th century), but the Château de Crosville was built in the late 1400s by Jean Boudet Crosville. Today the keep and gatehouse remain of this castle.

In the 18th century Jean V Crosville rebuilt the castle, but it was left to decay in 1742. Put up for sale in 1980, the Lefol family, then farmers, bought up the entire property. Today, thanks to their eager farmer daughter Michèle, the restored castle has found its soul again.

Si vous recherchez l'endroit idéal dans le Cotentin pour accueillir votre mariage, ne cherchez plus. Le Château de Crosville est un superbe château médiéval, la salle est splendide, l'équipe adorable et très arrangeante. Le traiteur est également excellent et a géré sans problèmes notre repas pour 160 personnes. Tous les invités se sont régalés.

La journée des plantes Franco -Britanniques est un moment de convivialité, de partage et de découvertes. Une belle promenade à travers tout ce qui se fait pour les jardins. Sans oublier les épices du monde, les fromages et tout ce qui agrémente un bon repas en famille entouré d'amis.

Erfurt Synagogue

The Erfurt Synagogue was built c. 1094. It is thought to be the oldest synagogue building still standing in Europe. Thanks to the extensive preservation of the original structure, it has a special place in the history of art and architecture and is among the most impressive and highly rated architectural monuments in Erfurt and Thuringia. The synagogue was constructed during the Middle Ages on the via regia, one of the major European trade routes, at the heart of the historical old quarter very close to the Merchants Bridge and the town hall. Many parts of the structure still remain today, including all four thick outer walls, the Roman­esque gemel window, the Gothic rose window and the entrance to the synagogue room.

After extensive restoration, the building was reopened in 2009. On display in the exhibition rooms is an collection of medieval treasures discovered during archaeological excavations. This includes 3,140 silver coins, 14 silver ingots, approx. 6,000 works of goldsmithery from the 13th and 14th centuries and an intricately worked wedding ring of the period, of which only two others are known to exist anywhere in the world. A mikveh (Jewish bath) has been excavated close by (13th/14th century). The Old Synagogue, the Small Synagogue and two Jewish cemeteries together form a network of historical buildings and sites which vividly portray the role of Jewish life in the history of Erfurt.
