Castle of Flecheres

Fléchères is the largest castle open to visitors in the environ of Lyon.
Built in one go from 1606 to 1625 and preserved intact, it offers an exceptional picture of the life of the grandees of Lyon in the 17th century.

In 1632, the painter Pietro Ricchi, just arrived from Tuscany, here realised an astonishingly varied decor, which surpasses all those that are known in France from this period, for its quality, scale and state of conservation.

The visit to the catle also allows admiration of the great carved fireplaces, the grand open staircase, a Louis XV paneled apartment with rich furnishings, and the early kitchens in working order.
