A few hours outside Paris are the remains of the chateau de La Mothe-Chandeniers. The castle was built in the 14th century and was owned by French nobles. It was conquered twice by the British in the Middle Ages and was devastated during the French Revolution. Around 60 years later, after a wealthy relative of Napoleon III took control, he restored the castle to its former glory. However, in 1932, just after central heating was installed, a violent fire broke out. Since the fire, the castle has been slowly taken over by nature. Trees have grown through the interior, and vines crawl along the once sturdy castle walls. Though its fate is still uncertain, today there are efforts to save the castle with a group raising money to restore the ruins.
