The Château du Pin' was built in 12th century by Chanaleilles, then was heavily remodeled in the 16th century. The spot then acquired a dual function: military, with the addition of defensive towers, but also with agricultural crops in the field. The Chateau du Pin is typical of the fortified houses Ardèche Cévennes. Built on a hillside, the castle is now surrounded by contemporary gardens, chestnut and dry stone terraces. The set is now a website dedicated to contemporary creation, open to the public since 1994 as a museum.
