"La Perruque" Farm Barbençon
A 17th century enclosed farmhouse with traditional volumes - listed monument.
The farm of “la Perruque”, whose proximity to the old castle and the agricultural plateau determined its location, belonged to the lords of Barbençon.
Recognised since 1988 following its classification as a monument, this enclosed farmhouse dates from the 17th century and develops its traditional limestone volumes around an interior courtyard which was accessed by a carriage gate.
A rare witness to the defensive system, a loophole adjoins the entrance on the left side. Faced with the attackers, the ensemble simply opposes its blind walls on the street side. The “L”-shaped dwelling is attached to the right of the entrance to guard the access.
