  1. History of the castle
  2. Photo Gallery

Any castle has legends, the Fort la Latte does not escape this rule. But this is a legend this rumour persistent which appears in many accounts of the Average Age taken again later by a good number of historians: a banneret of Brittany N of Goyon, companion of Alain Barbe Torte, would have set up at this place towards 931 a keep out of wooden to supervise the comings and goings of Norman and to push back them... Let us leave with the legend the purpose of which is undoubtedly to attest that the prestigious name of Goyon goes back to immémoriaux times and approach certainty as for the family of Goyon-Matignon and with the construction of the castle. The lords de Goyon, lords of Matignon, built the castle of the Roche-Goyon about the middle of XIVe century. On a rock peak which advances in the sea the flanked enclosure of turns raises surrounding a cylindrical keep. The drawbridges make it possible to cross the two deep cracks which separate it from the coast. Damaged seriously during the disorders of the League, the castle is altered and restored between 1690 and 1715 on order of louis XIV which uses it as coastal defense. It takes the name of Fort la latte.
