Sunday Bridge Series: Josselin, Morbihan, France, 2010

Josselin castle was built on the Oust river. It is said a first keep was built here in about 1008. Work on the current castle began after 1370, it was later transformed in the 15th and 17th centuries but from the river side, has kept its fortified look. To this day, it has remained in the same family and still belongs to Josselin, 14th duke of Rohan. It is also a wonderful doll's museum nowadays. Read all about this fascinating historical and mythical castle here. The official website is this way. This is this week's contribution to Louis La Vache's Sunday Bridge Series @ San Francisco Bay Daily Photo.

It is easy to imagine damsels and knights in this setting. No doubt the bridge crosses a moat. cool.

This is just an exceptional shot -something out of a story book. Very cool.

A beautiful castle and I have already seen a fine bench elsewhere... Anything to do with the story of Donizetti's Maria di Rohan?

Ah, j'ai été , là!ce château m'avait émerveillée!
même que j'avais fait genre " j'emmène ma fille voir le musée des poupées", et que je m'étais "sacrifiée" pour ça..Mais que je me suis régalée!!(alors qu'elle avait trouvé les poupées vieilles et pas belles!!)

What a fine contribution to Sunday Bridges, Ciel. «Louis» always enjoys seeing medieval structures in la belle France.

I would love to tour the castles of Europe. I cannot imagine living in one...but, then, I cannot imagine living in the fourteenth century either. :)

What a great ide to convert it into a doll museum.
