This castle was built on a rock that overlooks the plain of the Saône River. The building of this magnificent castle began in the 13th century. It is a symbol for the town of Gy.
For more than 700 years it was owned by the archbishops of Besancon. First it was a refuge, then little by little, it became a house for dewelling. The construction of a splendid eight-sided tower, in a Flemish style took place in the 16th century. Then in the 18th the Cardinal de Choiseul-Beaupré turned it into a prince luxury dwelling.
Nowadays this castle is a private property open to the public. One can visit private parts which show 18th century furniture and also a museum devoted to wine situated in its large celling.
