castle of chalmazel

The castle dominates the valley of the Lignon and it was built to be an impregnable fortress on the instructions of the Count of Forez.
The castle, with its medieval aspect, has kept the elements of a fortified house from the year 1231, but with all of the later modifications and additions by the Talarus over the centuries: murder-holes, walls, keep, round walk with machicolations - but it also has Renaissance elements: the facade, the inner courtyard, galleries and chapel.
