Puymartin is a very nice castle, with period furnitures and pretty turrets. It’s especially famous with the ghost who would haunt its North tower; the one of the White Lady. Thérèse de Saint-Clar was incarcerated by her husband in this tower, died there and walled up. Her spirit showed itself yet… Maybe will you also feel its presence…
