Located in the Forez plain in Saint-Étienne-le-Molard, the Château de la Bastie-d'Urfé was originally a medieval fortified manor house that was turned into a magnificent Renaissance residence during the 16th century. The twelve-column gallery, the guardroom, the ramp protected by a sphinx, the cool room, the chapel and the gardens, including box hedge parterres and a rotunda containing a fountain, are some of the features to be enjoyed by visitors.
In July and August, the Bâtie-d'Urfé Nights festival offers plays, shows and exhibitions for culture fans.
