Goutelas castle


Located on the foothills of Forez, Goutelas castle is a very living heritage! Since the 1960s, it has drawn its creative force from the collective adventure of its rebuilding : interactive exhibitions, open-air concerts, shows and debates on ideas, the site comes alive throughout the year through a vast program labeled by the Ministry of Culture. Discover both its roofs made of glazed tiles, its towers and ramparts and the exceptional view on the plain. Take a break at the castle's café.
