Vieux Château

Interesting
As it is now, the chateau essentially dates from the 13 and 15C, brightened up in the 16C with bay and dormer windows made from white tuff rock. The crypt and the keep (wonderful 11C carpentry) are the oldest. The rooms are decorated with pictures as well as attractive cast chimney plaques. In the keep there is the trepanning kit of Ambroise Paré, father of surgery.
