Google Earth Plug-in: Les Bories Castle

Info Map Comments (0) Related Files


XVth and XVIth century castle, constructed from 1497 till 1604 on the bases of a ancient noble den which had justice rights on Antonne, Sarliac and Savignac-les-Eglises.

Although having undergone at least four sieges, during the religious wars then during the Sling(Revolt), this castle is well preserved.

This beautiful building of Renaissance style consists of an important three levels lodging house framed of machicolation, flanked by two round towers and by a big square tower surmonted with machicolation providing a covered patrol way.

We can admire moats there formerly fed by Isle river, bays with transoms, some watchtowers and turrets with corbelled construction, a monumental square staircase arched with nose cones which terminated on tailpieces, an access gate to the staircase sculptured by frizzy cabbages, cellars with barrel vault, a monumental fireplace, a Gothic oratory, Louis XIII style furniture and tapestries of Flanders.
