The History

of the Castle

The castle of Marigna was erected in the eleventh century and has a rich and fascinating history.

The castle of Marigna is listed as a historical monument since 1945. The first castle, said Haut-Castel, is probably built in the course of the eleventh and twelfth centuries by the lords of Chalon, counts of Burgundy. It was destroyed and restored several times.

It is then composed (Rousset): (…) of a body of building under which is a vaulted portal that communicates to the court, an irregular court, two other buildings adjacent to the previous and a dungeon having the shape an irregular pentagon (…) A stone and iron fence closes the entrance to a beautiful avenue. A large circular tower pierced with loopholes defends the southeast corner of the castle. There was a similar one at the opposite corner.
The doorway is still decorated with crows that supported many machicolations. It was preceded by a large ditch today filled, on which was thrown a drawbridge (…)
