Dauphin Castle

★★★☆☆

dauphin castle

The castle owes its name to the coat of arms of the person who built it in the 12th century: Robert I, Count of Auvergne, on whose arms was a dauphin.
The castle has been occupied since 1756 by the family of a King's musketeer, Cesar I de More. The present owners, the Count and Countess Gabriel de Germiny, are his descendants. The castle, garden and museum are open to the public.
