Saint Hugues, the Abbot of Cluny, was born in this castle. The only remaining vestiges are the square keep, the oldest in Burgundy, and the two round towers. One of the towers has a domed vault over a dungeon of about 10 m in depth. Mementos of Saint Hugues are on display here, as is a collection of revolutionary posters in the jailer's house. Room devoted to Middle Age military art.
