Built on the remains of a Gallo-Roman camp, Brandon was a part of the military defense set-up of the Duchy of the Burgundy up until the 15th century. It is an excellent example of military architecture with Upper and Lower walled Courtyards, 12th century path round and a 13th century drawbridge tower. The main building was modified during the reign of king Louis XIII, as the fortress was turned into a 17th century residence. Brandon is a family home, inhabited all year round. Wonderful panoramic view
