September 11 Maison de Forte Reignac

The site has been in use as a dwelling for 20,000 years so it's had a bit of remodeling along the way.

Some of the most historic parts still retain their vintage appearance.

Some spaces have been used consistently through the ages. Only their purpose has changed.

Most of the maison has been furnished with a more modern look.

But not too modern.

A place this old has seen lots of social norms, politics, religions, and philosophies come and go. Surely,  one of the saddest was the Inquisition. The exhibition of torture implements was disturbing to say the least!
