Auxi-le-Château Castle

Auxi-le-Château Castle, locally known as Château de Auxi-le-Château, lies on a rocky outcrop in the village with the same name, north west of the town of Doullens in the Pas-de-Calais department in the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region in France.

Auxi-le-Château Castle was built in 1178 by Philippe d'Alsace, Count of Flanders. In 1412 the village of Auxi-le-Château was the scene of a battle between the Charles the Bold, Duke of Burgundy and Louis XI, Duke of France. As a result of this battle the castle was dismantled.

This is all the historical information I was able to find about this castle. If you know more, please mail me!

As you can guess from the pictures this is not one I'd recommend. It is just a big piece of wall with little architectural detail. It is also part of a small housing area built on the castle site which is private.
