The most visible trace of Lillebonne's heyday remains today the amphitheatre theatre, on a site preserved from any subsequent construction.

During the medieval period, the Scandinavian chiefs took possession of the city where they set up their residence and founded the castle of Lillebonne, which was to serve as a residence for Norman princes who liked to stay until the middle of the 12th century.
