Château du Bois-Cornillé

Val-d´Izé, France

Château du Bois-Cornillé dates originally from the 13th century, but the current castle was built by Pierre Landais in the late 15th century. It was completely renovated in the 18th century and only the medieval tower survived. The chapel dates from 1721. The park was designed by Eugene Denis Bühler and Édouard André in 1876.

Beau souvenir de ce magnifique Château, fort bien entretenu où nous avons été accueillis chaleureusement et avec beaucoup de classe

Journée du patrimoine. Je me dis qu'il serait bon de regarder le parc et le château par cette belle journée ensoleillée... Manque de bol, le parc est payant... A l'entrée un gardien qui fait payer à la tête du client (le tarif ne correspondant pas à l'écriture de l'ardoise) et ne s'occupe pas de cette journée particulière qui pourrait lui apporter quelques futurs visiteurs... Je n'y retournerai jamais et je vous déconseille d'y aller...

Narikala Castle

Narikala is an ancient fortress overlooking Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia, and the Kura River. The fortress consists of two walled sections on a steep hill between the sulphur baths and the botanical gardens of Tbilisi. On the lower court there is the recently restored St Nicholas church. Newly built in 1996–1997, it replaces the original 13th-century church that was destroyed in a fire. The new church is of 'prescribed cross' type, having doors on three sides. The internal part of the church is decorated with the frescos showing scenes both from the Bible and history of Georgia.

The fortress was established in the 4th century and it was a Persian citadel. It was considerably expanded by the Umayyads in the 7th century and later, by king David the Builder (1089–1125). Most of extant fortifications date from the 16th and 17th centuries. In 1827, parts of the fortress were damaged by an earthquake and demolished.
