The castle of Vendeuvre-sur-Barse

There was a strong castle in Vendeuvre in 1107. Crossing the years, undergoing the war outrages, the castle of Vendeuvre had known many transformations. Some famous families resided in the castle: the Luxembourg, the Mesgrigny and the Vendeuvre who bequeathed it to their nephew Bourlon of Sarty. The last descendant, René Bourlon of Sarty, donated it in 1978 to the Aube district and to the town of Vendeuvre on Barse. Classified as an historic monument, the castle is still on restoration, and cannot be visited for security. But the park is opened to visits. In summer there is a sound and light show, and a Fall Festival. The Barse river starts under the castle.
