Chateau de Creully

Château de Creully
 is an 11th- and 12th-century castle located in the town of Creully in France. This beautiful castle has been fabulously modified throughout the years.   In about 1360, with the Hundred Years War, it was modified into a fortress. During this period, its architecture was demolished and reconstructed with each occupation by the English and the French.

With the end of the war (1450), ownership of the castle returned to Baron de Creully.It was demolished on the orders of Louis XI in 1461 through plain jealousy. According to legend, When Louis XI passed through Creully in 1471 he authorized its rebuilding to thank the local people for their warm welcome. 

Today, the castle's large halls are used today for various events, including weddings, concerts, exhibitions and conferences. Nice!

Hope everyone is enjoying April and having a blessed Spring.
