AP: The castle of Bon Repos (Jarrie - Isère - France)

Today, I went back to a place I discovered last week-end during a walk near Grenoble. This is in the village of Jarrie, a commune in the Isère department in south-eastern France (French Alps).
There is a very nice castle there.

This castle was edified around the year 1450 and modified at the beginning of the Renaissance period. It was abandonned in 1906, and its deterioration speeded up with the collapse of its roof in 1917.

The city of Jarrie bought it in 1976 and decided to rehabilitate and secure its cave so as to welcome artistic and cultural manifestations. The city, thus supports the actions of the association for the maintenance of the castle of Bon repos. This association participates in the building restoration and it animates many activities, such as plays and outside dance spectacles which brings many volunteers.

It is now registered on the supplementary directory of historical monuments.
