Located on a rocky outcrop dominating Rimarde, Yèvre was a fortified town a long time that the Romans occupied. At the beginning of XIIe century, Louis VI the Large one repurchased the stronghold to make a royal châtellenie of it and the prévôté seat of one. The current castle was built under the reign of Philippe Auguste (at the beginning of XIIIe). The visit includes the castle, the postern, the ramparts, the Saint-Gault church and the vestiges of the Saint-Lubin church. The village of Yèvre le Châtel is classified among "The Most Beautiful Villages of France". particularly thanks the Companions for the châtellenie for the texts as well as the information on this one.
