Volunteering at La Mothe Chandeniers

Fun moving Lions at the castle
Apart from saving the Château de la Mothe-Chandeniers, the 18000 donors are now the co-owners of the castle as well. Thanks to these donations, the Château de la Mothe-Chandeniers was brought back from the brink of destruction and is no longer a forgotten monument.
The historical record is mostly silent about the fate of the castle in the decades that followed. It is known, however, that in 1932 AD a massive fire broke out, shortly after central heating was installed in the building, and much of the castle was destroyed in the conflagration. Subsequently, the castle was abandoned, forgotten, and was slowly reclaimed by nature.
