Nid d'Aigle de Brotel Fortress

Nid d'Aigle de Brotel Fortress

The Brotel Fortress sits on a rocky outcrop overlooking the Val d'Amby. It was in this beautiful countryside that Edouard Herriot chose to spend his later years.
The history of this residence began in 1247, when the Laure family payed homage to the seigniory of Brotel. The building demonstrates its defensive vocation, sitting on an outcrop, dominating the only way of access. Remodelled in the 16th century, it consists of an earlier dwelling to the east, where there is no natural protection from the cliffs, and a terrace on two levels. Access to the courtyard is protected by two fortified gates.
