Château des ducs de Bourbon (aka Mal Coiffée Keep)

This keep is all that remains of the castle of the Dukes of Bourbon. It served as a prison from the 18C until 1984. The prison fittings and the writing left by prisoners (in particular from the Second World War) are touching testimonies to the lives of those detained here.
