History: The Castle of Villers-Bocage was built by Mansart in 1637. A wing was added to it in 1766 and the project of a second symmetrical wing never saw the light because of the context of the French Revolution. In 1777 Frederick II, Archduke of Austria and future Emperor, brother of Marie Antoinette, halted at Villers-Bocage on the occasion of his visit to France. During World War II, the Castle was hospital function which earned him to be spared by the bombing. After the war, he became a maternity hospital and gave birth 450 children. In 1950, the Apostolic Nuncio and the future Pope Jean XXIII, canonized in 2014, spent a week at the Castle to visit the reconstruction zone.More
