Climb the steps to the terraces of Chateau de Cenevieres for picturesque views of the river valley and lush countryside. Go inside to view traces of the original fresco representing the kidnapping of Helen and the burning of Troy. As you approach from the road, the chateau has an interesting profile. Instead of looking like a single building, it appears as a village filled with houses, châteaux, storefronts, perhaps a basilica. As you move closer, you realize why: This 13th-century castle was significantly altered from the 14th to 16th centuries. Builders replaced the Gothic openings with large Renaissance windows and pierced the medieval defensive walls with dormers.
