Castle, French Heritage monument to Obies

The Castle consists of a main body flanked by two square towers. The central body is on two levels. The 1774-75 dated anchoring irons were affixed on the left side of the earlier elevation to the second level. The corniche retains the modillions of wood. This elevation was flanked by a veranda. Broken rump has been renovated in 190, date of slate in the coverage. The rear elevation was less reworked and keeps the basement and sandstone door low arches framed by blue stone that seems more ancient that the rest of the rise in brick. The two towers consist of three levels, also built in brick. A portal, formed by two blue stone pillars and a grid is connected to two other pillars by a wall that closes the property. Castle built at an unknown date (17th century?) and replacing a former Castle. The building was changed to 1774-75 (irons to anchor).
