  • Castle to visit to know the life of the Marquis de Lafayette, who was one of the great men of our history of France and especially America. Castle aves parts fitted, relating the life of the General, as well to Chavaniac in Paris. Very nice garden with more than hundred years old trees. See and see again with still more curiosity, especially if you are interested in the life of Lafayette.

  • The castle of Chavaniac-Lafayette is not far from Puy en Velay and if tour is an absolute must. The Marquis of La Fayette, who played an important role in the revolutionary war and during the French Revolution, was born here in 1757. The castle is now a museum. An interesting audio tour of a history, which I do not knew so well, but which is of great importance.

  • Beautiful place, very touching. Visit of the Castle and its Park very well documented. The audio guide is a real plus when you can not do the visits with the guide. Special mention to the exhibition in the former preventorium!
