    Hello everyone, my first post here on 28DL and i'll like to start with my favourite place, i have been exploring here for the last 7 years slowing watching it decay more and more, those in france will recognise it but i will leave its name hidden, It's history can be traced back to before the XIIIth century, although only a small part remains of the castle of the XIVth century, it was modified at great expense during the XIXth century in fact the couple near bankrupted themselves and had to sell large plots of land to finish the chateau off, however its fate was sealed and although the chateau is well know for its help to rehouse refuges from the Alsace during WW2 during 1950 a family tragedy happens sees it become abandoned and has sat empty since. its owner refuses to sale and only wants to see the castle fall

    as it used to be
