Grignan's castle

From 12th century to 17th century. Classified Historical Monument.

In the middle of the 11th Century, Hugues Adhémar was the first important person to make Grignan Castle his home. Prior to that, his ancestors built, at the top of the hill a sort of medieval castle surrounded by hight walls, used to protect the area of the neighborhood Lords. A mention of a feudal castle is made in 1106.


The castle has been constantly modified during the ages.  Gaucher Adhémar (1450-1516) and his son Louis Adhémar (1474-1558) altered the feudal citadel to a modern castle. The south façade, called François I façade, was built in 1545. King François I, visited there with his 3 sons, the queen and the Duke of Vendôme. 


In 1559, Louis Adhémar died without any children, and his heritage went to his sister Blanche’s son. Blanche was married to Gaspard de Castellane. The daughter of Mme de Sévigné, Françoise-Marguerite, married François (Comte of Grignan), who was the 5th generation from Gaspard de Castellane. The castle was nearly totally destroyed after the Revolution, in 1794.


In 1912, Mme Fontaine, a wealthy widow, bought the ruins and started to rebuild them. The property was sold to the district in 1979.

Today, the castle is a museum where, all year long, several cultural events are organized (classic music and jazz concerts, theatre, proceedings…).
