    • THE CASTLE OF PERIGORD


      Let me tell you about my millennial history… I have seen so many things in my walls. No battle has overcome my greatness. Sieges set my ramparts ablaze in the Middle Ages! But nothing prevented me from reaching you. I am not a simple castle… my origins date back to time immemorial. I was one of the 6 duchies-peerages of the kingdom of France! Duke, Governor of Guyenne, of Languedoc, Viceroy of Navarre, Marshals… My family welcomed big names and crowned heads here. Like a beacon, I impose my greatness from Périgord to Agenais… My name was that of a glorious destiny that men and artists shaped in stone ink, giving me the look of a giant!

      The castle of the Dukes of Biron is full of architectural treasures and majestic rooms which house contemporary art exhibitions throughout the year. Almost 1000 years of history have carved this stone giant, presenting a medieval, Renaissance and classical castle all in one !

      Like an open book, the castle bears witness to the extraordinary talent and inspiration of its builders. Browse the old fortress rising to the clouds, and enjoy the Renaissance city whose surrounding countryside is a veritable garden with a southern accent.
