    • Listed as a historical monument, this extraordinary “cliff-castle” is undoubtedly the most secret, the most unusual and the most mysterious in Périgord. Some even say it is haunted...

    Stunning castle so well kept with beautiful rooms and very informative guide book in English. All real fires inside and really gives an idea of life inside. Also grisly but interesting exhibition of torture. A fantastic choice for a day with not so nice weather. Will definitely recommend and visit again

    Interesting exposition of cave castle itself, pre-historic artefacts, local fauna. Torture room not for people with live imagination and weak nerves, might give nightmares. Very interesting for kids, as well as adults.

    Breathtaking collection of Victorian-era, medieval and pre-historic artefacts. All look authentic, and a lot of the stuff way surpasses the National Museum of Prehistory in interest. You can touch...
