Château in Auvergne
In the Auvergne, the chateaux are an integral part of the region’s heritage, just as the volcanoes are. The history of these monuments, which are some of the Auvergne's greatest treasures, goes back to the medieval era. These chateaux, present all over the region, are generally open to visitors. The chateaux of the Auvergne testify to the evolution of history, from the Middle Ages to nowadays. These monuments are found on a route more commonly called the "Route Historique des Châteaux d'Auvergne" one of the oldest routes in France. Representative of the different architectural periods which have left their mark on history, and home to many treasures and works of art, these chateaux proudly dominate the valleys and offer exceptional views of the surrounding areas. During an exciting journey, you can visit almost fifty chateaux, including that of Saint Saturnin, which belongs to the Plus Beaux Villages de France Association.Online booking
