Overview
More
Château classé Monument historique Perché sur son roc escarpé, à 750m d’altitude, l'ancienne forteresse de Polminhac domine fièrement la vallée de Cère. Le donjon imposant symbolise toute la majesté du château de Pesteils et évoque le Moyen-âge dans sa plus rude expression, témoignage glorieux de ce que devait être cette place forte du Cantal. De belles fresques du XVe ornent l’intérieur. Le XVIIe siècle enrichit le corps principal de remarquables plafonds peints. Tapisseries, peintures, meubles, parent richement cet ensemble. Agrandi et restauré au XIXe siècle, le château est depuis 1608 la propriété de la famille de Cassagne de Beaufort de Miramon Pesteils qui l'habite encore aujourd'hui. 20 personnages de cire illustrent sept siècles de vie quotidienne à Pesteils.
