Cycling Excursion to Chateau de Miolans

If you are an experienced cyclist, you will enjoy an excursion to Chateau de Miolans. Your journey will start in Albertville. You will reach the nature park of the Bauges Mountains – this is where the castle is located. The gorgeous building on a rock was founded by the Miolan family in the 15th century. The chateau is conveniently located near the crossing of two rivers, Yser and Arc. Initially, the architectural landmark was an important fortress that protected the road from Savoy to the Mediterranean Sea.
In the 17th century, the building lost its protective function, and so it was turned into a prison. Political prisoners and the bourgeoisie made up the majority of people who served time there. Marquis de Sade himself was also imprisoned in Chateau de Miolans, but he managed to escape. The castle was almost abandoned during the French Revolution. Then it was put for sale, and the government became its owner. Copyright
