The Château is a unique tile improvement of the French civilization in Civilization VI. It must be built adjacent to a River.


The Château plays to France's strength in the cultural game, providing them with a Civ6Culture Culture bonus, especially when adjacent to Wonders. This translates to a very impressive Tourism6 Tourism bonus upon the discovery of Flight. Building Châteaux around luxury resources will help France keep its economy strong, and they can also create good spots for Seaside Resorts when placed next to coastal tiles.

Civilopedia entry Edit

If one must ask, one cannot afford it. A château is a manor house or country home of landed gentry, usually without fortifications. In the Middle Ages, a château was largely self-sufficient, being supported by the lord's demesne (hereditary lands). In the 1600s, the wealthy and aristocratic French lords dotted the countryside with elegant, luxuriant, architecturally refined mansions such as the Château de Maisons. But many of these stately homes were burned during peasant revolts and populist revolutions. But a few remain as tourist attractions. Today, the term château is loosely used; for instance, it is common for any winery or inn, no matter how humble, to prefix its name with "Château."
