Photographer's Note

Another view of the Chateau de Kermezen. A chateau is a manor house or residence of the lord of the manor or traditional country house of a member of the nobility. Unlike the word "castle," a chateau may or may not be fortified. In this case, the chateau has been in the Kermel family for over 600 years, is made of Breton stone, and, while having castlelike features, was obviously not built to resist siege warfare. The chateau is located in a green valley just a few kilometres from Paimpol and Treguier.

Barely visible in the distance is a palm tree. A view of the front of the chateau is given in the WS.
