The Castle of Mont-l'Evêque

This ensemble consists of three buildings. The chapel and the castle date back to the fifteenth century. They have been completely revised after 1840 and decorated in the troubadour style. The house of the eighteenth century was built to receive administrative services of the diocese. These buildings are arranged around a central space, rectangular in the middle of a large park remarkable, the story of this ensemble is closely linked to the Abbey of victory. Indeed, it is in 1214 that Philippe Auguste offers Guerin Chancellor Bishop of Senlis, Montleroy site, which will eventually take the name of Montleveque. It will continue to belong to the bishops of Senlis until the Revolution. The buildings were purchased in 1806 by the family of Pontalba which gives it its current layout.
