Castle of Tracy

The path of the rock in Pouilly is definitely the most interesting part of the railway from Paris to Nevers. The railway, describing many curves, continues to rub shoulders with the Loire. On the left side you can see the town of Sancerre, and villages that carries the eastern flank of the mountain: Ménétréol, Thauvenay, Sainte-Bouise. On the right bank, which follows the sinuosities, bypassing the promontory of Tracy, leaves to the left beyond a stream, the village of the same name. Its castle, 15th century, restored in 1641, preserved ancient towers. On one of them it still reads this motto: « Don bien acquis, » surmounting the coat of arms of the family Destutt de Tracy, who owns this fiefdom since the end of the 16th century. M. de Laubespin of Tracy, the current owner, did raise, on top of a mountain in the Park, an Observatory Tower, where it dominates the surrounding country.
