Château de Sanzay

Medieval castle dating from the 13th century. Feudal fortress built on an ancient Gallo-Roman opidum, surrounded by moats (Classified as a Sensitive Natural Area in 2013). In addition to its historical interest, the site reveals an important natural wealth.
The association "La Colporteuse", a socio-cultural center, a third place and a school of ecological transition, brings the castle to life and organizes numerous events: youth workcamps, training courses, nature activities, volunteer workshops, apiary school, group reception, schoolchildren, tourists...
The place lives at the rhythm of the participative building sites which allow the renovation of the place, and a building for the guards with an artillery tower. The place is thus a perpetual building site! The vestiges of the castle of the XIIIth century are essentially the castle of entry, the tower keep and a building for the guard
