Couches by pennystot

Couches

The medieval castle at Couches was owned by Margarite de Bourgogne. The buildings that remain are the 10th Century chapel, 12th century dungeons. 14th century tower of justice and the 15th century manor house. In summer you can visit the house and grounds.
Truly amazing! Great photo!

Love seeing photos like this! From when I was very young, I heard stories about castles, but of course, the USA is too young to have any like this.
