Château of Naillac / the Brenne eco-museum

Overlooking the Creuse from its two 12th century dungeons, this feudal castle has kept the marks on its walls of numerous renovations and uses : fortress at the time of the Blanc en Berry princes, it became a prison in the 18th century as you can see from the prisoners’graffiti and more recently it was a communal school. The priory room ornated by a magnificent Romanesque fireplace surrounded with two bay columns retraces the history of the Le Blanc fortress with a model of the château in the 15th century. The permanent exhibition of the ecomuseum is housed there.
