Portaberaud ou La Folie Mercier

63200, Mozac
  • Visitable


Archetype of a "madness" of the eighteenth, residence of charm and pleasure or home of the fields, the destiny of Portabéraud is linked to a notable riomois, Baron Gabriel Mercier ( [xxxxxxx] ), who bequeaths us a wonderful testimony in the full swing of the spirit of the Enlightenment. He will be the first mayor of Mozac in 1790. You will discover the art of the ironwork omnipresent on the site, the chapel with its painted medallions, its stuccoes and its remarkable platform, as well as the terracotta statues during your walk in the gardens. Close to the abbey Saint-Pierre de Mozac which counts among its treasures remarkable historical capitals of Romanesque art.

My castle is visitable

A delightful walk followed by a lyrical tale

At 16h, you will be guided gently between groves and kitchen garden by Pascal Piéra, doctor of art history and author of the book "The flie of a wise man" which traces the life of the creator of the garden … Gabriel Mercier.

At 17:30, you will be carried away in a fantasy and Homeric dream with Cardinan de Laine which presents the concert narrative "Oswald and the Bird Wing Badine". Two musicians and a soprano singer twirl flute clarinet, guitar lute and hurdy gurdy.
