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.
