Photographer's Note

The village had its castle as early as 922. It was completed with a keep tower, a hospital and a college church in 1015. Rebuilt in the 15th after being burned to the ground by the English, the square tower still holds a treasure in its chapter room. From the church, the walk along the wall goes round Gerberoy, on the eastern part of the city, stands the place where Henri IV was tended to after being wounded at the battle of Aumale in 1592. Henri Le Sidaner, a post-impressionist painter, was seduced by the silent Gerberoy and created an Italian-style gardens still visible from the walls.
