    The origins of the castle go back to the 10th century and the bishop of Auxerre, Héribert, brother of Hugues Capet. Rebuilt, enlarged and embellished by its successive owners, the most famous of whom were Jacques Coeur and Mademoiselle de Montpensier, known as the Grande Mademoiselle, it is a majestic pentagon of pink brick, with corner towers crowned with campaniles, an inner courtyard built by Le Vau and an English-style park.
