Discover the castle of Dissay

discover-the-castle-of-dissay

The castle of Dissay dates from XV century. It is Pierre of Amboise, bishop of Poitiers, which made it build. It will be used besides as residence to the bishops until the Revolution.

The defense systems were authorized by letters patent of January 11, 1434 signed of the King Charles VII. Hugues de Combarel, successor of Pierre d' Amboise is authorized there to build a hotel surrounded by “walls, fossez, paleiz, bridge portaux leveiz, turns, guérites, weepholes and other fortifications and emparemens, telz that good will seem to it”.

The building draws a flanked rectangle of round towers which give him this imposing air. The fortification of the building is found in all the architectural elements: the presence of the machicolations, the limited number of windows, ditches and the drawbridge (replaced then by a bridge sleeping). In spite of this wealth of precautions, it was taken by the admiral de Coligny before the head office of Poitiers of 1569, episode of the wars of religion.

In 1789, the bishop of Poitiers, Martial-Louis Beaupoil de Saint-Aulaire, is elected with the General states of the kingdom but in 1791, he refuses to lend the oath of the civil constitution of the clergy and flees in emigration. The castle thus is seized and sold like national good.

The building for this time has suffered from several destruction. The collegial one which bordered the wall located on the right of the castelet of entry, was destroyed. In the oratory, murals dating from the XVI century were damaged by alteration work. There remain all the same elements of these frescos which are one of the interests of the visit of the castle.
