Chateau de Cenevieres, Cenevieres

4.6
Climb the steps to the terraces of Chateau de Cenevieres for picturesque views of the river valley and lush countryside. Go inside to view traces of the original fresco representing the kidnapping of Helen and the burning of Troy. As you approach from the road, the chateau has an interesting profile. Instead of looking like a single building, it appears as a village filled with houses, châteaux, storefronts, perhaps a basilica. As you move closer, you realize why: This 13th-century castle was significantly altered from the 14th to 16th centuries. Builders replaced the Gothic openings with large Renaissance windows and pierced the medieval defensive walls with dormers.

  • Very interesting visits the Guide know the subject and even more if we discuss with him. The Office of the Alchemist is the main point of the visit especially for who is interested and knows the symbols.

  • But here, an advertisement on TV, Internet consulted and this Sunday, February 24, 60 kms to get to CENEVIERES. Arrival on site, access gate and open courtyard and visually welcoming site. Another couple of visitors is present and 1/4 hours later no one. The second couple leaves the scene, I take the resolution to ring and new quarter of an hour unanswered. So I'm calling the phone number listed in the portal. My interlocutor is not on site, but tells me that he will contact the owner by SMS. New wait, 20 minutes with two other people. We leave the places very disappointed for the 60 kms of the return. Lover of the lot, maybe we'll return!!!
