OPEN TO VISITORS EVERY DAY

EXCEPTIONAL CLOSURE RE-OPENING MARCH 9th 2020

Welcome to "Le château de Beynac", the most authentic and best preserved Fortress of the Perigord.

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.

Follow the steps of Richard the Lionhart, Alienor d'Aquitaine.. and Enjoy your visit of Beynac!
