In the Middle Ages, Montaure (Mons aureus - golden Mountain) was a prosperous borough where important fairs were held. The first document daes back to the early XIth century : in 1018, the Lord of Montaure was Odon Stigaud, Seneschal of the Duke of Normandy, Richard II (William's the Conqueror's grand-father). The first lords of Montaure had built a fortified manor. The present castle was built in the mid XVIIIth century. Its purity and harmony are a perfect example of the charming and graceful Louis XV style. Its square is flanked by two antbuilding in Mansart's style (late XVIIth century).
Nowadays, Montaure hosts a cultural center with various events all year round.
