Château de Biron, Biron
Categories: Historic Sites, Tourist Spots
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.
