The least common of Condé Intercom, yet it is known for its historical heritage with Pontécoulant Castle, located on the Druance and 2 km from the town. It is the former home of Louis-Gustave Doulcet, Earl of Pontécoulant. The castle consists of two parts, the first in the 16th century and the second from the 18th century. Mrs. Barrere, the last of the family Pontécoulant bequeathed the castle to the department of Calvados in 1896 with the desire to open to the public. Only a few years later, more precisely in 1908 that the museum was created.
