The birds and their falconers of the Géants du Ciel are at home in the Bishops’ Chateau, also known as the Barons’ Chateau.
Together with the chateau d’Harcourt, the château de Montléon, the Gouzon Keep and the Tour de Flins, the Bishops’ chateau towers over Chauvigny.
These five chateaux standing on the same site make Chauvigny unique in feudal Europe.
The strange silhouette of the chateau can be explained by its history. Once the home of bishops, who extended and reinforced it, the chateau was the victim of numerous wars before being abandoned and used as a stone quarry.
