This was my favorite Fortress/Chateau/Castle...the history with Joan of Arc, King Charles, Knight Templars, and best of all it's not dressed up!! It is what it is. It shows it's history. The good, bad and ugly and that now it’s 2013 it has a chance to rise and shine for tourist and natives to enjoy. I really felt as if I could image how it was to live and work within this fortress/castle back in it's heyday. The coldest of the walls, the panic of the uncertain future with the hundred year war. The knights Templar trying to escape and carry on their duties...it's all there to soak in. You get a handheld audio tour and go at your pace. It's small but grand to me. NO gold! No grand bedroom! No bigger than life artifacts just you, the walls and your imagination as you listen to the audio. The grounds are beautiful great photo ops. Don't rush this castle, walk slow and feel the ambient air within.
The Joan of Arc history is told well in the rooms dedicated to her. She is a woman all women should know the history of. We seem to be losing sight of our world history. This castle brings its history back to the forefront and a very realistic style that I really enjoyed. Thanks for keeping it real and old.
