    • WELCOME TO BEYNAC CASTLE
      THE MOST AUTHENTIC FORTIFIED CASTLE OF PÉRIGORD!

      Standing at the top of a vertiginous cliff, dominating the village of Beynac-et-Cazenac, the Beynac Castle is a stone sentinel who has been watching for more than 9 centuries on the Dordogne.

      Visiting Beynac means going through 5 centuries of French history, in the footsteps of Richard the Lionheart, Eleanor of Aquitaine, Simon de Montfort and the Hundred Years War.

      From the defensive rigor of its 12th century keep to the Renaissance staircase through the very impressive room of the States of the Baronnies of Périgord from the 15th century, the 13th century cuisine and its exceptional barbican, its exceptional state of conservation offers you an unforgettable journey. in the heart of the Middle Ages.

      Between heaven and earth, from the top of its 14th century keep, the 152 meters of sheer drop on the Dordogne will offer you an unforgettable view over the magnificent Dordogne valley, panorama classified 3 stars in the Michelin Green Guide.


      Visiting Beynac is to experience a dive in total immersion in the heart of history.

    What's not to love about a true medieval defensive castle? They have done a great job of restoring many of the rooms. Missing the chart of residents of the Chateau which used to be there and the ability to see the Chapel but its a great visit to a major historical site. Million dollar views of the valley too.

    We walked up from the village in very hot weather. Maybe better to drive up. The chateau is in very good condition with great views. Admission includes audio tour which is very helpful.

    Feels like you're stepping into another world... absolutely stunning. Stumbled across this place unexpectedly but it ended up being a highlight of the journey. Do not miss out on this place.

  • "Good history told"

    4 / 5 Reviews posted by claudiaverkaart on 06/08/2022

    The history was told very nice with a recorder, like the tiptoi pens, you touch a number and then you listen to the story. The view is phenomenal.

    5 / 5 Reviews posted by scotties00 (Worthing, United Kingdom) on 12/07/2022

    Top attraction to visit in the Dordogne, this is a lovely castle. We parked at the bottom and enjoyed wandering up the (very steep) old streets to get to the castle. The parking ticket is valid in...
