The castle seen from the south. One of the horses is coming from the left.


The access to this tower house was denied by the lock at the gate of the field. Two horses were grazing in the field around the castle, so I didn't dare to jump in. I took some photos from the road.
The castle dates from the 15th century, it is well-preserved, but the roof is gone. The castle has four turrets, one of them has a staircase inside, another one has a lavatory.
