Classified as a historical monument.
13th century feudal fortress built on a rocky "motte" around an ancient marshland. It is made up of four round and four square towers that were originally linked by ramparts, one of which still exists. A large guardroom served as a hideout during the Hundred Years' War for the dreaded Perrinet-Gréssard, adversary of Joan of Arc, whom he forced to abandon the siege of the town of La Charité-sur-Loire in 1429. Guillaume Jouvenel des Ursins, Chancellor of France under King Charles VII, was the owner as well as Nicolas de l'Hôpital, Duke of Vitry and Marshal of France
A feudal castle that makes children dream. La Motte Josserand is one of the most beautiful military constructions of the Middle Ages in the Nivernais.
