VENDOME

Parc et vestiges du Château de Vendôme

Description

The remains of the château (11th - 17th century) and its collegiate church, Saint-Georges, are a reminder of the power of the Counts, and later Dukes, of Bourbon-Vendôme, who rose to the throne of France with Henry IV. The medieval enclosure, whose walls are still partly visible, dates from the 12th century. The Poitiers Tower, the main tower, still dominates this ancient fortified structure. The castle was damaged by two assaults: in 1562 by the Huguenots and in 1793 by the Revolutionaries. The heart of the castle is occupied by a beautiful English-style park created in the 19th century (1807 cedar and a collection of hydrangeas created by the Mouillère family, Vendôme horticulturists), which offers a unique panorama of the town.
