France: Usse Castle

Ussé is a castle in the Indre-et-Loire département, in France. The stronghold at the edge of the Chinon forest overlooking the Indre Valley was first fortified in the eleventh century by the Norman seigneur of Ussé, Gueldin de Saumur, who surrounded the fort with a palisade on a high terrace. 

 Thanks to Mr Maud. He has used one stamp from The game of Chess series issued in 2020. Twelve stamps were issued in this series. The green stamp on the left is a new definitive showing portrait of Marianne, France’s famous representation of liberty. The design is based on a portrait by street artist YZ, and line-engraved by Elsa Catelin.
