Content : Little known or famous, the castles tell their secrets!
Haunted castles, mansions given over to nature, fortresses or prodigies of luxury and excess... Readers will find in this book around eighty castles, chosen amongst the most unusual and extraordinary of France. This book lifts the veil on their most intimate secrets or the rumors that surround them. It is through the underground galleries that you will enter the Palace of Versailles or through the history of Bluebeard that you will discover that of Tiffauges. Charles Perrault imagined the castle of Sleeping Beauty after visiting the castle of Ussé, and the myth of the White Lady was born in Trecesson. Fortresses take over breathtaking sites, on rocky outcrops or in the middle of the waters, and unreasonable works punctuate the territory, such as the Château de Bagatelle, built in sixty-four days!
