The first mention of the Château de Saint-Alban dates back to 1188. It was besieged several times during the Hundred Years' War. The three existing towers were added in the 15th century. Since 1824 the castle has been used as psychiatric center.

Très bon accueil avec une coupe de champagne malgré notre arrivé tardive à 21h30 . Propriétaire très gentil et serviable. Très belle endroit au calme. Piscine super dans un beau jardin. Il mérite amplement cesTrois Étoiles et même limite un 4 étoiles car en comparaison avec d'autres 3 étoiles il est bien au dessus. Seul petit bémol pour moi c'est la déco ancienne, mais c'est le style château (mon mari lui a adoré cette déco...)

קבוצה של 13 איש מצרפת, איטליה וישראל. היינו במלון לילה אחד ב 7 ביוני 2018. מלון ברמה גבוהה מאוד עם מסעדה מצוינת. המבנה והחדרים בעיצוב גותי עם בריכה וגן נפלאים מסביב. הבעלים כריסטיאן ואשתו נותנים הרגשה ביתית. המלון לא זול, אבל זאת חוויה מיוחדת. שכחנו כמה פריטים במלון והבעלים דאגו לשלוח לנו את זה הביתה! כל הכבוד. ממליץ בחום.

Lincoln Memorial

The Lincoln Memorial is an American national monument built to honor the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. It is located on the western end of the National Mall in Washington, D.C., across from the Washington Monument. The architect was Henry Bacon and the designer of the primary statue was Daniel Chester French.

Dedicated in 1922, it is one of several monuments built to honor an American president. It has always been a major tourist attraction and since the 1930s has been a symbolic center focused on race relations.

The building is in the form of a Greek Doric temple and contains a large seated sculpture of Abraham Lincoln and inscriptions of two well-known speeches by Lincoln, 'The Gettysburg Address' and his 'Second Inaugural Address'. The memorial has been the site of many famous speeches, including Martin Luther King's 'I Have a Dream' speech, delivered on August 28, 1963, during the rally at the end of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.

Since 2010, approximately 6 million people visit the memorial annually.
