On the foundations of the old castle and keeping only the Saint-Yves Tower (which sank about thirty years before the Revolution), Gilbert de Chabannes actually build another around 1470. It was a fortress with huge towers whose walls had more than 3 meters thick, embrasures there were arranged to allow man the cannons. It is through a drawbridge thrown over the ditch they had access to this fortress.
