"Well, this is really the most unbelievable area of France that we're going through today. In the first–half of the sixteenth century this château was built, it was flanked by the four towers that you can see around the edges there, giving it a double façade. It was extended in 1895, and, in fact, they put an almost identical building onto the other side. You can see the two parts of the château. It was used in the Second World War as a base for storage of documents." –Paul Sherwen (1 hr., 3 min., 38 sec.)
