On the road to the priories

Porte de DrômArdèche is the cradle of the family of Diane de Poitiers and the counts of Albon, founders of the Dauphiné. Diane de Poitiers, duchess of Valentinois and Diois, and countess of Albon, was the favorite of king Henri II, son of François I, who reigned from 1547 to 1559 and her beauty remained legendary. This glorious lineage left us a rich architectural and religious heritage, which still testifies today to the power of these lords.
