Castle of Fougeres-sur-Bievre


castle of fougeres-sur-bievre

Originally an 11th-century structure, it was entirely rebuilt at the end of the 15th century, with only the large, square keep remaining original. The first works kept the military aspect (ditches, cannon-holes, wall walk, etc.) but, thereafter, more Renaissance refinements were added, such as a gallery, mullioned windows and steep-sloped roofs.
During the 19th century, a spinning mill was installed in the chapel. The castle was purchased and restored by the state in the 1930s.
