Château de Carrouges
An elegant 16C gatehouse flanked by four circular towers leads into Carrouges Castle. The château was largely built during the reigns of Henri IV and Louis XIII. Surrounded by a moat, the buildings are set around an inner courtyard and the apartments reveal a mixture of Renaissance and Classical interior decoration, with some fine furniture. The visit ends with the monumental staircase with brickwork vaulting and rounded headed arches.
