Vestiges du Château de Saint-Germain


The chateau was among the most important “chatelleries” (lordships) and was behind the commissioning of the chateaux of Saint-Denis and Allymes.

These three sites thus formed a line of defence expected to prevent the Savoyards’ expansion to Bresse. For a number of years, the committee to safeguard old St.Germain (Comité de Sauvegarde du Vieux St-Germain), formed in 1996 under the impetus of Armand Decour, has been ensuring the upkeep of the site backed by the support of the town. What remains today of the Medieval chateau are sections of the surrounding wall (including two “false towers”), the wall that separates the upper court from the lower bailey, and a very lovely ogival door.
