Le château d'Auneau

Un premier château (“la Vieille cour”) fut édifié au VIIIème ou IXème siècle pour protéger la route de Chartres et les habitants du bourg. Au XIème siècle, un second bâtiment vit le jour sous l’impulsion du seigneur de l’époque, Hugues de Gallardon, vassal des Comtes de Chartres qui possédaient la châtellenie d’Auneau. Il reste de cette période le donjon rond qui fut surmonté au XVIème siècle d’un dôme et d’un lanternon.

En ces lieux se tenait le parc des Félins d’Auneau. Ce parc, ouvert en 1998, a fermé ses portes le 31 août 2006 et la totalité des animaux a été transférée sur un nouveau site situé à Nesles, en Seine-et-Marne. Le nouveau Parc des Félins a ouvert ses portes le 14 octobre 2006 : www.parc-des-felins.com.

La cache se situe aux abords de ce parc, malheureusement privé…
