Château de Val

 

 

 

The Chateau de Val is one of the best conserved and one of the most remarkable castles in the "Haute-Auvergne". This imposing fortress is flanked by six, machicolated towers with pepper-pot turrets, the different roofs of which give Val an original combination of colours. The 15th century gothic chapel (a historical monument) in the main courtyard is dedicated to Saint-Blaise. We enter the castle through an iron banded door, the spandrel of which is decorated with a bas-relief of the fleur-de-lys arms of the d'Estaing family. The upper floors are reached by a spiral staircase from a vestibule, which was originally an open courtyard.

After being abandoned and restored several times, Val has been the property of the town of Bort-les-Orgues since 1953. It is situated in the commune of Lanobre, in the Cantal.
