Dormans was chosen by Marshal Joffre as a strategic place of the two battles of the Marne.
In 1920, one of the four national monuments of the First World War was built within the park of the castle.
This memorial includes superimposed crypt and chapel.
Remains of 1 500 unknown soldiers are gathered inside the ossuary which is lit by the lantern of the dead soldiers during the night.
The covered way can be visited as well as a room in memory of the fights which took place in the Marne.
In the park of the castle, there are also a museum dedicated to champenois tools, a water mill with one of the biggest bucket wheels in France and a protective orchard.
