Castle of Cleron


castle of cleron

The castle was built in 1320 on the bank of the Loue by Humbert de Cleron on the site of a former Gallo-Roman castrum. The castle was heavily remodelled in the 18th century while preserving its Middle Ages defences - keep, machicolations, arrowslits and murder-holes. It is flanked by a square tower, the Clock Tower, from the 19th century.
This perfectly restored castle is the private property of the Montrichard family. It has been listed since 1988 as a monument historique by the French Ministry of Culture.
