Description

The château dates back to the 15th century. The Marquis de Lullin built the Gothic castle which has retained its style despite construction work up to the 17th century.
In December 1943, the château saw a tragic event. A group of young people organised a ball for Christmas Eve. The Germans received information of this and, believing them to be members of the Resistance, attacked the church. The château was set on fire and all the men were shot. Only the women were spared. Now, all that's left are a few walls and a monument in memory of the young men.
