Alphonse de Lamartine is a poet, writer and politician.
He was one of the major figures of French Romanticism. Saint-Point feudal castle is bought in 1801 by the poet’s father. Alphonse de Lamartine settles there in 1820, after his marriage with an English aristocrat, Mary Ann Birch. Restored and increased, the castle will remain his family property until his death in 1869. Always remained intact and visible, furniture, objects and memories of its private and political life, as well as the complete literary works can be seen.
At the end of the park, near a roman church, is the tomb of the poet, topped by his motto “speravit anima mea” (my soul has hoped).
