A LISTED HISTORIC MONUMENT

Castle of Gruyères

The Castle of Gruyères is a 16th century building. Surrounded by a moat and two circular corner towers, the castle shows the evolution from a fortified house to a classic country residence in France. In 2010, the Castle of Gruyères became a listed historic monument.

We are proud our CUPA 5 natural slate helped recover the elegance of a small part of French's great architectural legacy.
