Built in the 15th century, the château de Val has become almost an island since the creation of the Bort-Les-Orgues dam. Its exceptional setting makes it one of the most famous sites in the region. Jean Marais climbed its towers in the film 'Le Capitan', and many famous artists have exhibited their work here. The fortress is flanked by six towers crowned with machicolations and topped with pepperpot roofs.
In the main courtyard there is a Gothic chapel, also from the 15th century.
The second floor houses annual exhibitions.
Various musical, theatrical and festive events are regularly organised. For children: a treasure hunt in the castle to make the visit more fun.
NEW: The Royal Suite, unusual accommodation for two to four people, fully equipped. Sleeping in a 15th century castle? It is now possible.
