The history of Château de Galinée

From the 13th century to the present day

13th century

The fortress of Galinée was built in the 13th century by Perceval de Cognetz. 6 generations of the Des Cognets family have succeeded each other on the 14-hectare estate until the 16th century.

18th century

It was in the 18th century that the fortress was replaced by a very beautiful Renaissance castle, consisting of a main body and two parallel wings. The chapel was built in 1715 and keeps its name “Notre-Dame de Pitié”.
In 1758, during the Battle of Saint Cast, the Château de Galinée suffered a fire which destroyed it.

19th century

It is after the fire of 1758 that the castle of Galinée is rebuilt in a manor which preserves in this new construction 3 escutcheons, witnesses of the families which followed one another.

21th century

Nowadays there is a 13th century fortress wash house, a polygonal tower and some 16th century elements as well as the 18th century chapel, before the fire. It is in this chapel that the grocery store of the campsite is installed.
