MY CORONA TRAVELS - CORROY LE CHATEAU MEDIVIAL CASTLE - BELGIUM

Amongst the many Castles and Fortresses in Belgium, there is one medivial castle located in Corroy le Chateau. I visited it a few years ago because there was a medivial fest in the park with a fashion show from this time ! But I only show you the castle, the festivities this year are of course cancelled du to the Coronavirus ! The Castle was built around 1270 by Count Philippe de Vianden,  in the plains of Wallonia, it is still today in perfect condition and is one of the most beautiful examples of princely medieval architecture.

It was, indeed, never sold, simply passed down by direct affiliation. The Marquis de Trazegnies, descendants of the architect and heirs to the Orbais, Brabant, Vianden, Sponheim, Bavière and Nassau families, now live there. 

This pentagonal-shaped property, with its 4 corner towers, features stunning interiors from the 18th and 19 th century as well as many art works. 

Unfortunately it was not allowed to go inside you only could see the castle and the beautiful park around ! 












and the fashion show

I find these buildings from centuries ago so fascinating. Unusual that the families have managed to remain living there through all the generations.

It's a beautiful castle! I hope you get to see inside one day.

The castle is enchanting and straight out of a storybook fable. Letting tourists visit the grounds probably helps with the upkeep of such a grand place but it must be odd to be inside looking out.
