Ensemble Troglodytique : Michelin's recommendations
An unassuming doorway off the courtyard of the Château de Brézé leads into a 15C gallery carved out of the rock which takes the visitor down to an extensive network of underground passages (over 1km) steeped in history and mystery. Their uniqueness and complexity is derived from their medieval use for stone extraction (quarried for the castle), cellars for wine and other functions down the ages.
