Château du Pressoir

  • 15646788483-803fff5d38

Small medieval building with elements dating from the 12th-13th century and with a characteristic 15th century appearance. It has remarkable parts: a chimney with a curved hood, a chapel in the upper part of the dwelling and a fortified dovecote. An inner courtyard surrounded by buildings remains of the castle: a main building used as a farmhouse and ruins of walls to the east of the dwelling. Back to the east, above an underground passage cut into the rock, are buildings with very old parts. To the south are ruins of a wall with towers and archways. To the west, a terrace overlooking the valley had defences, in particular a square tower used as a dovecote, which seems to date from the 12th and 13th centuries.
