FEATURED
The World As We See It , or as we missed it … February 2012

One of the main attractions of the little village of Tournon-sur-Rhône in the Rhône Valley, France, is the feudal castle built into solid rock, overlooking the town and the river. Tournon Castle is a listed building under the Historic Monuments.

The castle, whose foundations date back to the 10th Century, also has a section built during the Renaissance that houses the town museum. A room in the museum is devoted to Marc Seguin, a local engineer who built the first suspension bridge across the Rhône, which was completed in 1825, linking the twin cities of Tournon-sur-Rhône and Tain L’Hermitage.

    It seems to be growing out of the rockface. Well captured Trish

  • I really love the way so many castles were built right into a solid rock base.
    Thank you for your lovely comments !

    Wonderful image, your title is perfect. Looks like they used the stone there to build it so it blends with the mountain so well.

  • Byron, thank you very much for your wonderful comments and fave !
    We saw several castles that had been built similarly on solid rock foundations,
    but this was one of the most impressive.
