The castle of Apremont
Childhood friend and great servant of King François I, Philippe Chabot was appointed Admiral of France and had an imposing Renaissance castle built around 1534 on the foundations of the family fortress of Apremont, known since the 11th century.
This castle will receive King Louis XIII in 1622 after his victory over the Protestants of Benjamin de Rohan-Soubise but will then be abandoned by its lords.
In 1735, Charles-Paul Sigismond de Montmorency-Luxembourg ordered the destruction and sale of the castle, with the exception of the chapel and the two magnificent towers.
Open from April to September
