The history of the castle
Many emblematic characters will follow one another at Rochecotte.
The Duchess of Dino bought the castle of Rochecotte in 1828 and built it as we can see it today. She will receive many personalities such as Balzac, Adolphe Thiers, but it is especially the presence of the prince of Talleyrand Périgord with whom she is very linked that will mark the place. His coat of arms can be found on the pediment of the castle as well as on one of the stained glass windows of the chapel built in his memory.
