Château des Aulnays

Built: 11th century.
Ownership / Access: Private property.
Notes: Château des Aulnays is located in the village of Torcé-en-Vallée in the department of Sarthe. Its origin dates from the eleventh century. Built by Alberic I de Montmorency, constable of Henry I, the castle was a warrior-use building. The presence of a moat with an island could attest to the early medieval settlement. Severely damaged by the English, it was rebuilt in the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, and then abandoned. In 2015 it was acquired by a private owner to renovate it in order to make a shelter and a place for seminars and music concerts.
