The Château de Gordes, rebuilt in 1525, already existed in 1031. Well preserved and carefully restored, it combines the architecture of the Middle Ages with that of the Renaissance.
The imposing building is strongly defended by large round towers whose machicolation crown supports a terrace for the artillery, the high walls have been pierced with three floors of "renaissance" windows, one can also notice on the walls, the towers and the watchtowers, the openings of the fire hydrants judiciously distributed.
Andrée Simon "Le choix de l'abstraction"The southern facade of the castle opens up to the sun, facing the old town of Gordes. Behind the fountain, a vaulted door in the wall leads to the monumental staircase that serves the building.
The Château de Gordes, a listed building, will now host exhibitions all year round.
This magnificent building in the heart of the village will become a space dedicated to art in all its forms.
