Castle, French Heritage monument to St didier d allier

Sentinel monitoring the gorges of the Allier, the castle is known from 1256. The building is destroyed in the 14th century by the troops and rebuilt immediately. The provisions are those of a simple House-strong plan almost square, flanked by a stair Tower half off-work on the North facade. A wall defending the North and west sides. Openings were basically drilled on the North and South facades, probably in the 18th century. The west facade has retained under the roof alignment of consoles to jumps that should support, originally, a defensive device. The entrance to the caves is by an arc third bridge that allows dating of this level of the 13th century. The second level of cave dates back to the Roman period, as the system of vaulting arches. On the ground floor, on the side of the dining room, a wall is lined with a trim panel which the upper part is decorated with a frieze painted in geometric and floral from the 17th century. The top of the door giving access to the dining room is occupied by a panel of wood framing a painting representing a hunting scene (17th or 18th century). In the dining room, a panelling runs on all height and two top doors are occupied by canvases painted in monochrome landscape decor. The development of this exhibit, in a 17th century style, seems back in the 19th century and be the work of a local craftsman. The exhibition, housed in the 17th, has also painted woodwork and door tops trimmed with polychrome painted backdrops. On the first floor, the room n ° 1 painted a ceiling joist to the 17th décor. The top of the wall has a painted frieze.
