In Carolingian times there was a dungeon in this place. In the 10th century, the count of Montdidier lived in this fortress. His wife had the Notre-Dame church built nearby. Philippe-Auguste made the castle of the counts his royal residence and restored the fortifications. In the 16th century, it became the seat of the judicial bodies. Then in 1800, the courtroom becomes the public prosecutor's office. Destroyed during the First World War, this building was rebuilt around 1930 in the neo-gothic style, but the interior plan retains the same characteristics. Only the base and the adjoining Philippe-Auguste tower have been preserved.
