Address Bonnivet 86380 Saint-Martin-la-Pallu, France

Located in the commune of Vendoeuvre-du-Poitou in the Vienne, the château de Bonnivet dates from the 16th century.

It is from 1515 that the lord of Bonnivet had this castle built.

This monument was certainly the most ambitious project of the French Renaissance before the castle of Chambord. At the time, it was 98 m long and 30 m high.

Today, however, only ruins remain, notably the northern boundary wall of the main courtyard dating from 1660.

Pantagruel et Gargantua de Rabelais

Gargantua and Pantagruel

Parodying everyone from classic authors to his own contemporaries, the dazzling and exuberant stories of Rabelais expose human follies with mischievous and often obscene humor. Gargantua depicts a young giant who becomes a cultured Christian knight. Pantagruel portrays Gargantua’s bookish son who becomes a Renaissance Socrates, divinely guided by wisdom and by his idiotic, self-loving companion, Panurge.
