castle of the counts of Bryas
In 1689, the Bryas family built this vast residence on the ruins of an old castle. Sold in 1815 to an entrepreneur who established a whitewash and chicory factory, it became, in 1837, the property of the Sainte-Anne slate company until 1946, then administrative city from 1951 to the present day. The park was dominated by a sequoia donated by Lafayette on his return from the Americas. Note the presence of a Russian terminal and a gigantic underground Gothic room. This castle has been listed in the supplementary inventory of historical monuments since 1972.
