Castle of Commequiers

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Built in the second half of the 15th & 16th century by Louis de Beaumont, the castle now belongs to the local authority. It was like most castles in the Vendée demolished on the orders of Cardinal Richelieu in 1628 and the regular breaches in its walls are evidence to its systematic destruction.
