Château de la Coste
Tour du Château de Grézels
  • 14th and 15th C. military architecture, restored at the end of the 16th C. after being ruined in 1580 when it was taken by Protestant troops. Originally a simple watch tower, the castle, laid out on a square plan, is flanked by two massive square towers on the west, and two circular towers on the east. It is made up of a rectangular building housing the living quarters, with two wings and a curtain wall to the south which closes off the courtyard. The north wing, after being used as a stone quarry for the construction of a former proprietor's house, was provided with an open-work gallery to ensure that it remained watertight. The building housing the living quarters is on four levels.
