Open to visitors from mid-February to mid-November, this beautiful site offers a stunning view of the Le Puy basin and the Velay mountains from its vast three-hectare platform!
You can explore the remains of the castle fort on a fascinating circuit featuring 14 points of interest. The 32-metre-tall keep, old chapel, cour d'honneur, wall walk along the ramparts and medieval-inspired garden are among the curiosities to see along the trail. You can also learn about the history of the De Polignac family, who have owned the fortress for around 1,000 years, and an illustrious family in French history whose members included Gabrielle, friend of Queen Marie-Antoinette.
Downhill from the fortress, be sure to visit the Church of St. Martin, a Romanesque gem and listed Historic Monument.
