Chauvigny, Chateau de Gouzon

Gouzon castle now consists of a mid elventh century keep, standing 36' square.  This was later nearly doubled in length when converted into a hall keep.  To the S&E a small court was attached to join the structure to the inner line of city walls running from east to west across the city walls.  The fact that it is directly overlooked by the nearby cathedral tower suggests that it was designed for defending this side of the city wall and the church behind it.

Why not join me here and at other French castles?  Information on this and other tours can be found at Scholarly Sojourns.
