Gerberoy, common ranked among "the most beautiful villages in France", in 1202 received the title of "city" by Philippe Auguste. This exceptional site, was besieged five times between 1079 and 1437. Gerberoy was plundered, dismantled and rebuilt each time, but kept its authenticity. The unique character of Gerberoy is enhanced by its many roses and the vestiges of its history: the collegiate, the ruins of the old fortress transformed into Italian garden by the artist The Sidaner, ramparts, old cobbled streets.
