The original Château Bois-Thibault was built in the 11th century, built of wood and stone on a natural mound. During the 12th century a dungeon was built and surrounded by towers, linked together by means of ramparts. In the 15th century the castle was surrounded by a moat and during the renaissance it was filled in and some parts of the ramparts demolished to enable the courtyard to be enlarged. In the 16th century there was a octagonal tower with a small sloped spiral staircase with shallow steps to allow horses to reach the attic. It has gradually fell into disrepair. It now belongs to the town of Lassay and restoration work is being undertaken on a volunteer basis – what is there is already impressive and is well worth a visit.
