Castle of la Roche, French Heritage monument to Jullie

JULLIE (Juliacum, derived from the Julius gentilice), parish in the Beaujolais, belonged to the diocese of Mâcon, the Archpriest of Vauxrenard and the election of Villefranche.

The name of this town is quoted for the first time in a Charter of 913. But we know nothing of its history prior to the 14th century.

At this time, Jullie belonged to Edouard de la Roche, Lord of the Court, who made oath of loyalty and promise of confession to the Lord of Beaujeu, in 1375.

One of his descendants purchased the Duke of Montpensier high, middle and low justice, as well as all the seigneurial rights of the parishes of Jullie and Julienas. The Act of purchase is the date of December 21, 1603.

These two lands were ceded, in 1644, likes CHAN, Squire, Prosecutor in the Office of Finance of the generality of Lyon. On 8 October 1718, Georges - Antoine Charrier, lieutenant to the présidial of Lyon, acquired, in addition, the Duc d ' Orléans grafts of the justices of Jullié, Juliénas and Saint-Jacques-des-arrêts.

On the territory of the parish, was the stronghold of Vavre which was long the property of a Dumas family.

The castle of the rock was built towards the end of the 16th century. Flanked by four flags and defended by wide ditches, he retained an imposing appearance.

We quote again a lovely Chapel, which dates back to the 12th and 16th centuries.
