This village is named after the Druyes springs, which abound in the municipality's territory. At the end of the 12th century, a castle fort built by the Counts of Nevers stood on a limestone promontory overlooking the valley.
From the imposing remains of Druyes-les-Belles-Fontaines Castle, which nowadays can be independently explored from Easter to the end of September on a discovery trail, you can enjoy a very beautiful view of the surrounding scenery. At the top of the 15th-century entrance postern, a superb view of La Puisaye and the edge of the Morvan awaits you! Formed of a residential palace backing onto a curtain wall, the castle was designed to a square plan: four round corner towers, a postern tower and two square side towers. The Romanesque gallery with arcatures and twin bays that can still be seen today is the only remaining part of the old seigniorial great hall.
Guided tours of the medieval fortress and village with typical houses are also available. During this commented walk, as well as seeing the castle, you can discover the Druyes springs, St. Roman's Cave, the 12th-century Romanesque church, the 19th-century washhouse or the old railway viaduct, where more daring visitors can go bungee jumping!
