The Castle

HomeThe Castle

Lucey village is situated in the northern part of Yenne’s basin, in a tight area which, at the time, naturally pushed all navigation and general terrestrial circulation uphill, alongside a small river favorable to mill construction. The strong rocks and river dictated the castle’s main construction axe in the Middle Age, and still today offers a breathtaking view onto the Rhône River.

The discovery, at the foot of the castle, of a block of blue granite, undoubtedly a menhir, and the archaeological excavations which revealed numerous Gallo-Roman vestiges, prove that the site of Lucey has been occupied since the Antiquity ages.
