The Tower of Crest (10th to 14th centuries), overlooking the town, is the highest medieval keep in Europe at 52 metres. Crest-born Maurice Izier won the penultimate stage of the 1968 Tour de France in Melun.

Tower of Crest: Crest is famous for its tower, the tallest in France at 52 metres. The tower is what remains of a massive castle destroyed by Louis XIII, who found it potentially dangerous. The tower was spared and was used as a prison in which were jailed libertines, Protestants during the Wars of religion and opponents to the Napoleon III coup.
