Though the earliest signs of the area’s settlement date back to the bronze age, it saw its first development phase in the Gallo-Roman era, taking advantage of its position on the route between Senlis and Beauvais. The earliest mention of the city dates back to the middle of the 7th century. In 1150 it became a significant pilgrimage site, with the founding of the collégiale Saint-Evremond collective. A place of residence of French kings, the city developed further in the 19th century with the industrial revolution and specialised in particular in earthenware and metalwork. The advent of the railway and the laying of the Paris-Nord Lille line made it easier to set up factories.
The banks of the Oise make for pleasant country walks, whether alone, as a couple or family. The right bank is occupied by brownfield sites, modest housing estates and factories, while the left bank has held onto its unspoiled side.
Many buildings bear witness to the city’s industrial past. During your stay you can tour the Château de Creil, built in the late 14th century; the Temple de l'Amour which stands at the far end of Ile Saint Maurice, Eglise Saint Médard and more. You can tour the Maison de la Faïence, which displays more than 600 fine earthenware, black stoneware and opaque porcelain pieces.
