The castle of Fère-en-Tardenois has left magnificent remains.
Nested on its plateau, it impresses with its grandeur and imposing silhouette.
Built on a slight slope, the castle is protected by a 20-meter deep ditch surrounded by a counterscarp (Slope of the outer wall of a ditch that surrounds a fortification) lined with stone and surrounded by a walkway defended by a series of watchtowers.
Since 1206, the site has undergone various owners, modifications and interventions by nature and history.
In 1533, Anne de Montmorency demolished part of the castle and left only what remains today, the towers and the entrance gate. He also had the bridge built that is visible today with its five arcades in the antique style.
Open your eyes and walk through this historic site whose gallery bridge is said to have served as a model for the one in Chenonceau.
