Built 500 m (1,600 ft) above the Indre River, the huge castle is famous for its massive square keep. Come to view the interesting layout with each floor consisting of a single room surrounded by stone walls measuring 23.3 by 15.4 sq m (76 x 51 sq ft) with walls 2.8 m (9 ft 2 in) thick.

Fantastic castle, with lots of interesting history. The cells decorated by inmates are particularly good. Unfortunately the royal lodge had Christmas decorations out, which seemed to replace some of the usual displays.
