The château[edit]

The château in disrepair painted by Général Léon Grégoire in 1927.

The first castle stood at a place later known as Le Vieux Château (The Old Castle) near the junction of Rue du Château and Rue de l'Archerie. By the early 19th century the castle was in ruins and in 1840 it was replaced by a new château comprising a main building and two symmetrical wings situated just to the north east of the village church. This building was partially destroyed during the First World War and rebuilt on the old plans in the late 1920s.
