Château de brecourt, on peu visité le château mais aussi pour les curieux du débarquement il y a une stèle au croisement d'une route qui est dédié à la 101eme et surtout à la easy company avec 13 hommes ils ont détruit 4 canons qui auraient pu mettre à mal le débarquement sur la plage d'utah.

Une merveilleuse ambiance communautaire, des séjours participatifs d’avant-ouverture inoubliables ... en plus de projets brillants. Le Château De Brécourt est une référence pour les membres de notre club suisse. Nous aimons, nous conseillons, nous soutenons (crowdfunding et vie communautaire) ! On y reviendra encore et encore une fois les travaux finis, aussi !

Beau château extérieurement. Vient d'être racheté par un suisse se faisant appelé le "Comte Bienveillant de Brescourt" Un peu hautain comme titre ! Et l'autocollant heponyme sur le Mercedes manque un peu de sincérité....

Sirmione Castle

Sirmione castle was built near the end of the 12th century as part of a defensive network surrounding Verona. The castle was maintained and extended first as part of the Veronese protection against their rivals in Milan and later under the control of the Venetian inland empire. The massive fortress is totally surrounded by water and has an inner porch which houses a Roman and Medieval lapidary. From the drawbridge, a staircase leads to the walkways above the walls, providing a marvellous view of the harbour that once sheltered the Scaliger fleet. The doors were fitted with a variety of locking systems, including a drawbridge for horses, carriages and pedestrians, a metal grate and, more recently, double hinged doors. Venice conquered Sirmione in 1405, immediately adopting provisions to render the fortress even more secure, fortifying its outer walls and widening the harbour.

Thanks to its strategical geographical location as a border outpost, Sirmione became a crucial defence and control garrison for the ruling nobles, retaining this function until the 16th century, when its role was taken up by Peschiera del Garda.
