Yahoo Map of Anjony Castle

Info Map Comments (0) Related Files


The chateau of Anjony was built by Louis d'Anjony, one of Jeanne d'Arc's "compagnons" who received instructions from King Charles VIIth to propect the surrounding countryside ; Anjony keep is still here, intact and proud a very characteristic example of the small 15th century mountain fortresses. Its history was tumultuous in the 15th and 16th centuries, as a genuine vendetta existed between the Anjony family and the Tournemire family, very close neighbours and rivals. A more welcoming and more modern main building was added in the 18th century to the austere medieval construction. The visitor will see a rich interior decorated with remarkable 16th century frescoes and furniture from various periods of life in the chateau.
The residence has been inhabited by the same family since its construction.
