The Saint-Mesmin's castle is not located in the village of Saint-Mesmin, but three kilometers away, near the village of Saint-André-sur-Sèvre.
It has been built in the 14th century along the Sevreau, a little river. The main tower is 28 meters tall.
The picture has been taken at the end of the afternoon. To take a photo of the other part (the main entrance), you have to be there in the morning.
I had to stitch 6 pictures to create this one.

Salut Stephane ,
l'effet du filtre est excellent . L'imposante forteresse se détache magnifiquement dans le ciel d'un bleu profond .

This is a very nice shot, like a post card, if anyone is still using postcard this days :) Good POV with a straight forward view. Beautiful clear day, and you got a super rich shaphire blue sky. Really enhance the earth tone of the castle. Good details and the texture of the stone wall really show. Excellent shot. thanks.

Good sharpness and textures on the old walls, Stephane. The architecture seems very bizarre: looking at the castle from this pov you really see how it was built and rebuilt and destroyed and rebuilt etc etc...
