This fortress, built between 1202 and 1240, served to defend the lands of the Lord of Parthenay and watched the plain of Niort while controlling the traffic on Sèvre niortaise it. Today, this building is uninhabited.

But, once a year, near Halloween, the castle is haunted by wizards and miniature witches … Children!

Meeting with mister Rodon, chief Wizard of these days:

For this year, the meeting of the wizards and the witches took place on a whole weekend, from Saturday, 24 till Sunday, October 25th, from 2 pm till 6 pm.
