castle of meung-sur-loire

The Chateau de Meung-sur-Loire is a former castle and episcopal palace located next to the collegial church; it was the country residence of the Bishops of Orleans. It was built and destroyed several times.
The oldest still existing parts date from the 12th century: still standing are the main rectangular plan building, flanked by three towers, a fourth having been destroyed.
The rear facade was rebuilt in the Classical style by Fleuriau d'Armenonville (bishop from 1706 to 1733). Beneath the castle are dungeons, a chapel and various medieval torture instruments, including one used for water torture.
