This 12th-century castle, surrounded by two sets of ramparts, had been built to defend the land held by the Abbey of Cluny. The property was acquired by the Lamartine Family in 1801 and offered to poet and statesman Alphonse de Lamartine for his wedding in 1820, who proceeded with renovation work along the lines of a Romantic Gothic style. The château is presently furnished from Lamartine's time; the visit includes: the poet's bedroom, office, dining room, sitting room. The tour of the grounds features an English-style park with hundred-year-old trees and Lamartine's tomb. A 12th-century church and 14th-century frescoes complete the visit to this site.
