Château de Chazeron
Originally a medieval castle, Chazeron was altered in the 17th century by the architect François Mansart. He built a staircase on the site of the keep and added an arcaded gallery. The moat was filled in, three of the external walls were demolished and two wings were added.
Today, the castle is a cultural centre, exhibiting drawings and avant-garde furniture. The keep offers views over the Sardon valley and the Limagne plain. The castle has been listed as a monument historique by the French Ministry of Culture since 1944.
