Chateau de la Prune au Pot

This chateau owes its name to the Pot family who owned it between 1300 to 1484. The old fortress spouts out. The square Tower, the western and northern curtains and the water ditches date from XIIIth century. The frontage, the drawbridge gate are of the XIVth and XVth centuries. From this time, splendid monumental chimneys, spiral staircases, superb carved waste-gas mains were added.

In the course of the XIXth century it becomes a farm, the sudden castle full of modernizations and then destruction and abandonment. Since 1984 it takes again life thanks to the building sites organized by l’Association de Sauvegarde du Chateau de la Prune-au-Pot et l’Association Chantier Histoire et Architecture Medievale.
