  • The site is invested in 1006 by Foulques Nerra (black) that there is a Dungeon in wood. It's 1 Hugues, count of Amboise, who built the current Dungeon in the 11th, on a promontory dominating the expensive. The castle was in turn shelter residents, place of residence of Royal guests & workshop of salpetrerie at the Revolution. Its ruins are the representation of the military architecture of the middle ages. Philippe Auguste takes over this site to Henri II Plantagenêt, King of England in 1188. In the second half of the 12th, the fortifications are consolidated and the defence of the city improved by the building of the 8 m high wall. In the chapel of the castle that September 8, 1476, Louis XI married his daughter Anne, 12, Louis of Orléans, 14, future Louis XII. Jeanne's older sister, Anne of France, had married in the same Chapel November 3, 1473, Pierre de Beaujeu, cadet of the House of Bourbon. This Chapel takes the name of Church of the Holy Cross in the eighteenth, name it owes to a fragment of the "true cross" brought from Jerusalem by Foulques Nerra.
