The castle of Montagu built at the beginning of the 15th century knew its peak thanks to the admiral of Graville at the end of the 15th.
Demolished after the revolution, the castle was given to the apprentices of Auteuil in 1941.

The work is varied and open to everyone: weeding, loosening, sorting and classification of remarkable stones, restoration of the access bridge, restoration of pottery, initiation to stone cutting, light masonry ...
The site takes place from 9h to 17h.
The association offers a picnic lunch.
