The former home of the de Sade family
It all began in 1715, with the Frères Franque who built the Château de Mazan. This establishment saw the birth of the father and uncle of the Marquis de Sade, the famous Abbot of Sade. The latter played a decisive role in the life of the Marquis, he was in charge of his education for six years. The Marquis de Sade spent most of his life in Paris, but stayed a few times at the Château de Mazan. It was in 1772 that the Marquis organized there in the gardens, one of the first Theater Festival in France. During the Revolution, the Marquis de Sade was declared undesirable in Mazan, some family archives were destroyed and part of the castle damaged. The Château de Mazan remained the property of the Sade family until 1850.
