The ruins of Larochette castle are dominating this small charming town at a 150 meters height the White Ernz, an affluent of the river Sure.
The main castle is accessed better by car unless you feel like walking there from the centre of the town.
The main castle which is built of stone is protected by a surrounding wall that nowadays is destroyed for its main part. Luckily a large part of the rest of the castle is restored.
The restored part gives you a fine impression of how a castle life of the 12th century could have been like. You see where the dining room was, the storage room and the bedroom. Paintings resemble of what the rooms might have looked like at these times.
The ticket for self tour was at the time of our visit 2 euros.
You can make lovely panoramic photos over Larochette and the surrounding forest.
