The Château (Castle) and Musée de Dieppe (Museum)

Dieppe’s mediaeval castle stands on a cliff on the west side of town and provides excellent views across the coast. Built as a defence against the English, the oldest part of the building, the round tower, dates back to the 14th century. Housed within the Castle is the Musée de Dieppe, which includes a variety of permanent and temporary exhibitions, including a valuable collection of ivory carvings, and others relating the history of Dieppe and its maritime heritage. Another permanent exhibition includes over 100 prints by Georges Braque, the co-originator of cubism, as well as works by other famous painters such as Pissarro, Renoir, Dufy, Sickert and Boudin.

Place du Puits Salé & Café des Tribunaux

This pretty little square, set around a fountain, is in the centre of town and is dominated by Dieppe’s oldest gabled house, the Café des Tribunaux, built in the 17th century and a favourite haunt of Oscar Wilde and his friends during his time here in the summer of 1897, as well as other writers and painters such as Renoir, Monet, Sickert, Whistler and Pissarro. Nowadays, it is still a popular place to have a drink.
