Follow the guide and explore the castle and the Montesquieu estate! Erected as early as the fourteenth century on the ruins of an older castle, the monument then underwent several alterations and multiple adjustments until the nineteenth century. The castle has retained its appearance of a medieval fortress that is reflected in the water of the large moat that surrounds it. Charles Louis de Secondat, better known as Montesquieu, was very attached to the family castle of La Brède. The inside tour leads the visitor on the steps of the writer through the emblematic places where he worked, including his library and his room preserved in its state of the eighteenth century. The visit of the chapel and the salons reveals the richness of the collections and furniture gathered by the family over time. A place of relaxation and work, it was here that he returned throughout his life and composed much of his work, including "The Persian Letters" (1721), Consideration of the Cause of the Greatness of the Romans and their Decay (1734) and "Of the Spirit of the Laws" (1748). The estate remained the property of the Montesquieu family for nearly 900 years until the death of the Countess of Chabannes in 2004. Follow the guide and explore the intimacy of one of the leading philosophers of the 18th century. The discovery of the farmyard of the farm will enhance the day families and younger.
