OPEN ALL YEAR - EVERY DAY

10 min
away from Sarlat

Perched high up on a cliff at breath-taking heights, the castle acts as a stone sentinel, which, for nine centuries, has watched over the Dordogne.
This 12th Century fortress, one of the most authentic and well-conserved in the region, offers its visitors from the heights of the medieval keep, a magnificent view over the valley of five castles.
Carved out of the cliff rock, 150 meters above the Dordogne, the castle dominates the Perigord region.
