A monumental entrance before your eyes, leading you to the headquarters of the Marquis Fimarcon, from the 13th Century until the French Revolution.

The ancient castle was rebuilt in 1725. Today you can see remnants of the original castle’s stables, towers and perimeter walls. In 1789 the castle was destroyed, a true hostile demonstration. The Fimarcon seigneury was established under the marquisate in 1503, with a territory encroaching on 3 dioceses for a total of 20 villages or parishes.

Thanks to the revolution, a new village is born. Today it welcomes travellers from all over the world, organises events and weddings in a perfect scenery.

Anecdote: after the death of a Marquis, the bells of the parish would ring for 40 days.
