Things to see and do

Exemplary evidence of the dissemination of Renaissance art outside of the Loire Valley, Assier Castle, built between 1518 and 1535, is the work of a wealthy gentleman, Galiot Genouillace, grand equerry of France and large Master artillery Francis. Its vast quadrilateral layout remains the entrance wing pierced with a portal to portal, pediments and loggias. Its courtyard façade is decorated with rows of windows and wide frieze, carved with emblems referring to the military functions of Galiot Genouillace and the legend of Hercules.
