The origins started with a roman tower with 1.5 metre thick walls, built in 1100, which today is the largest of the towers in the chateau and though round on the outside, it has square rooms on the inside, with a beautiful turning staircase.
Restored in the 16th century, decorative mouldings were added to the windows and gargoyles in the shape of cannons. In the beginning of the 16th century the current chateau was built, integrating the existing tower and adding a second tower.
Throughout history the chateau has played an important role in the region. On the 13th of March 1569, during the famous battle of Jarnac, the Chateau played an important role. De table on which died Prince Condé (Louis I de Bourbon) stayed for a long time at the chateau. From the 12th to 16th century the tower actually had a moat surrounding it and a drawbridge.
It is not until the 16th century that the rest of the castle was built and forms the basic structure of the castle you see today. In the 17th century the balustrade was added. Various parts of the chateau have been added to the list of historic monuments.
