Chateau de La Rochefoucauld, La Rochefoucauld

4.2
With a rich history reaching as far back as the 11th century, the is known primarily for its distinct architecture. The main attractions include a grand staircase and galleries that are said to have been constructed based on the designs of the legendary Leonardo Da Vinci himself during the 16th Century. Although there have been a number of changes and renovations that have taken place since then, visitors can still take guided tours of the libraries, furnished rooms, and even the building’s underlying foundations. Even though most of the castle is open to the public, one wing of the castle is still occupied by the Duke and the Duchess.

  • I recommend to everyone to visit this beautiful castle of La Rochefoucault, located a few kilometres from Angoulême. It is a magnificent monument that we see from the Highway 147 and who really deserves a visit.

  • Very nice castle at a great location. I won't say it's much different from other castles of that era if you've seen a few, but if you visit one castle this is certainly one of the best.
  • Great place. What a beautiful building.x
  • Nice Chateau, there are tours for the library rooms which I recommend doing and the rest of the rooms have explanations (French and English) in them. Interesting to look at the family history, especially as the same family live in it now. Only thing is I could of used more information on what happened during the revolution. Great views from it over the town, very picturesque place.
  • When you arrive at the Chateau you won't believe how beautiful the castle is. In front of the entrance there is a small river en the Chateau is located at a hill. On the day we have been there, there was a little medieval festival with music and Knight. It made the experience complete. Definitely a recommendation when you are in the area.
  • Fun and Interesting for all the family. Dress up day on Tuesdays.
