La Guerche Castle
- Guerche (La)
Built in the 15th century in Touraine on the north bank of the River Creuse, La Guerche Castle was both a residence and a defensive structure. The site's overall architectural design is a remarkable example of 15th century building technology, underlining the castle's historical importance. Visitors can enjoy a stroll in the landscaped castle grounds, planted in the 19th century.
