The history of the castle
Plunge into the heart of a rich and fascinating history spanning several centuries.
Bienassis castle has been hidden away in Brittany since the 11th century. It was the Lords of Lamballe who had the idea of building a wooden fortress on the site. Over the years, the castle has undergone extensions and transformations.
It has become a more comfortable and elegant residence. Each owner has added his own personal touch to its layout and interior design, making it a French architectural gem. It is a testament to the grandeur and prestige of its past that it has stood the test of time.
However, Bienassis has been the scene of many significant events, such as clashes between local lords. It has also been the venue for political meetings and negotiations, demonstrating its strategic importance at the time.
Today, the castle is open to the public. It offers an immersive experience through history. Visitors can explore the magnificent rooms and meticulously tended gardens and immerse themselves in a bygone era.
