  • Large building at the beginning of the Brouis pass, this castle still belongs to the Cachiady family today. It is not open to the public.

  • Built on an older building that stood close to the great ducal road created by the Charles Emmanuel I of Savoy, this residence is located on a strategic position. In 1793, violent fighting took place there, during which the soldiers of the Revolution drove out the Austro-Sardinian troops. Now the residence of Empire Ange colonel Louis Cachiardy and his son Jean-Marie, the Baron de Montfleury, the castle still belongs to this old family of Breil sur Roya.
