Château de Billy, France

I'm coming back from a solo ride along the Loire river in France with lots of castle pictures...
If you want to know where a specific castle is, all pictures are geotagged.

Let's begin with the Château de Billy in the Auvergne area.








The Château de Billy is a ruined 13th – 14th century castle in the town of Billy in the Allier département of France.

2012 seems to be a good year. Last week I made the second job, where I can travel by bike. After the job I did a little searching for Castel, Chateaus and citadel(?) on the way back home

Job site in Epe, by Gronau


Castle Bentheim




Barrock Waterchateau Ahaus



Not so fantastic, Castle Burloer


Better, Castle Diepenbrock




Chateau Ringenberg.



Chateau Raesfeld




And not far before home, the Citadel Wesel

The houses in front of the castle must be as old as it.

Chateau d'Essalois, Chambles, Loire, France



https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ch%C3%A2teau_d%27Essalois

Quote:
The oldest documents mentioning the castle are from the 14th century. The puy (hill) of Essalois is quoted in charters from 1337 onwards, variously named Podium deysaluym, Mons deysaluym and Suc du Pré.
In 1378, Arthaud de Villedieu paid homage to the Count of Forez for the house and the tower of Essalois which oversaw the Loire.
In 1464, the tower of Essalois belonged to Beraud de la Bâtie.
So far, the vestiges of this early construction have not be identified.

The castle is just above the Grangent dam on the Loire river.


Picture taken from the same place.

Chateau de la Roche, Loire, France

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ch%C3%...st-la-Roche%29

Quote:
The Château de La Roche is a restored castle situated in the in the commune of Saint-Priest-la-Roche in the Loire département of France, 20 km from Roanne. The castle stands on an island in the lake formed by the Villerest dam.




I found pictures on the internet :



Before the dam construction. One can understand why it is called "la roche" (The rock).




When the Loire river is angry...
