  • The chateau de La Rochepot has been standing on its rocky peak since the 13th century. During the 15th century, the chateau became the home of the Seigneurs Regnierand Philippe Pot, both knights of the Golden Fleece and counsellors to the Duke of Burgundy. Subsequent owners include members of the Montmorency family, the Cardinal de Retz and the Colonel Sadi Carnot, first son of the President of France, Sadi Carnot. At the end of the 19th Century, the Colonel Sadi Carnot, carefully restored the castle which had been partially destroyed during the French Revolution. The fortress is entered via a drawbridge. Once inside, the visitor can enjoy a lovely garden. He can also visit the chapel, the guards's room, the imposing kitchen, the captain's of the guard's room, the living room and the "Chinese Room". Several rooms have painted murals and Gothic and Renaissance furniture. From the North Tower, there is a striking view of the interior courtyard with its 72 meters deep well dug through solid rock. The Chateau de La Rochepot is remarkable for its colorful glazed roof tiles, typical of the Burgundy region.
