Magnifique parc, un lieu très spécial de part son histoire.

Les châteaux de la Loire n'ont qu'à bien se tenir. Le parc est magnifique . Le château est digne des plus grands.

Stunning chateau and grounds so well worth a visit. It was disappointing not to be allowed to go inside the Chateau itself, although we did sneak a quick look through a window to see a lovely room. The history of the chateau was fascinating.

Solo hay una visita guiada a la semana. Es muy bonito, pero no sé visita el castillo por dentro. Esta habitado aunque no de forma permanente. La traducción al español del folleto nefasta y solo hablan francés.

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.
