Château de Biron, Biron

(240+ reviews on the web)
Historic Site
Château de Biron bears a history steeped in conflict, having changed hands several times between the 12th and 15th centuries before Charles de Gontaut, duc de Biron, claimed it as his own. The present structure features additions completed over the centuries that make for an interesting ensemble: a 12th-century keep, 16th-century living quarters, a chapel, and vaulted kitchens. Locals purchased the castle in 1978, wanting to restore it. It's currently open to the public for tours--with audio-guides in English available.

  • One of the most beautiful castle of the Perigord. Prefer the guided tour for more details. Allow at least 2 hours of visit.

  • Multiple castles in one. Great panoramas.
  • Well worth the entrance money.
  • Vu seulement a distance mais majestueux
  • Fun Castle. Unlike other castles, are the rooms not decorated, which gives you a better look at the building. By the audio tour is also the history visible. A device you would determine at a single period, but now you realize that there lived in centuries.

  • The treasure hunt with the visit to the castle is a great and fun idea in family or in a group. The staff is motivated, friendly and available for us to share this unique emotion of domicile in the middle age in 2016. Special note for the demonstration of the usefulness of the weapons of the time by the guardian of the place. Those who want to plunge back into the past, will live a pleasant, a little short for a morning. 😉
