Château de Biron, Biron

4.2
#11 of 39 in Historic Sites in Dordogne
Historic Site Tourist Spot
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.

  • Beautiful castle, only little for the children. There is an audio in the Dutch for 3 euros. The rooms are all unfurnished and in some areas there are exhibitions with art.

  • Very nice small castle especially outdoors. We did the tour inside and it will... It is not great but I find that it's worth it if we agree to pay the expensive memory 8 euros entry

  • A nice Castle in very good condition from the outside. Located in the middle of a village in medieval style, with pretty small streets. A tourist office is on the site. We did not visit it, just admired and took pictures.

  • Fascinating history and stunning architecture. Admission seems on the high side for the region but well worth it once inside.
  • Fabulous history - art exhibition and artisan show
  • Multiple castles in one. Great panoramas.
  • Well worth the entrance money.
  • Nothing furnished, on one table and two eetborden after. The explanation and text is only in French and in addition, there has been talk of furniture that are no longer present. Many have not even text with explanations. Due to the high price (8 euro 30 for an adult) in my opinion, not worth its money. I would do it again.
