Photographer's Note

Hi photographers !
At the request of some members here, I post another picture, it's a long while ago I did and I had to see, how everything works:-))
Okay then for now, a castle.

Here's Chateau De Josselin, a big one, a beautiful one !

The vast fortress of Josselin, built in XIe century, was rebuilt by Olivier de Clisson in XIVe century. At the end of XVe century, Alain de Rohan and Jean II work with embellissement of their castle. One owes them the frontage of blazing style, prefiguration of the Breton rebirth, which contrasts with the turns and defensive walls. The interior, restored at the XIXe century, shelters rare parts of furniture. The castle belongs since the origin to the family of the dukes of Rohan. To have a good sight of the castle, to place itself on the Sainte-Croix bridge which spans Oust. The cliff of the walls is seizing. The building presents here under its aspect of fortress, with high towers, courtines and machicolations.
