Visit us and discover the old fortress of Bouzols
The castle of Bouzols is among the most prestigious and oldest castles in the Velay region. Surrounded by gardens, terraces, outer walls, a chapel and outbuildings, it is today one of the major historical sites in the “pays d’art et d’histoire” (land of art and history), of the city of Le Puy-en-Velay and its agglomeration. This medieval architectural ensemble was acquired in 1808 by the Beaud de Brive family, who restored and saved it from ruin between the last quarter of the 19th century and the first decades of the 20th century.
The “Bouzols, forteresse d’avenir (ABFA)” association (Bouzols, a fortress looking ahead)
The purpose of the association and the owners of the castle is to conserve, preserve, maintain and enhance this exceptional architectural and historical heritage, in line with the values and the spirit of this family for more than two hundred years. The events taking place are essentially cultural and touristic, they rely on partnerships with local authorities and associations in order to promote artistic and educational activities in the castle.
