Castle of the Taylor, French Heritage monument to Vergezac

Castle whose structure dates from the late Middle Ages, incorporating the 'compact' type that is often found in Auvergne and le Velay. First simple without ditches in the 14th century, the authorization is given in 1445 to strong House with ditches. Recognized, this first manor was replaced in the 17th century by another castle more important, to make a dwelling meets the tastes of the time: building with five towers, one of which had a crenellated appearance of Dungeon. The bays have been repercées. From 1767 to 1770 stand most inmportants redevelopment work of the architect Jean-Claude Portal: filling of ditches, interior decorations of the new staircase and apartments, closure of the Park, plantation... The Revolution destroyed the coronation of the great tower. The interest of the building lies above all in the quality of its interior. On the ground floor have been preserved from the Gothic vaulted rooms. The first floor presents a set of decorations of 17th and 18th century typical of the region (paneling, ceiling à la française). Park, dated from the 18th century, has retained its trace of the classical period.
