Chateau de La Rochefoucauld, La Rochefoucauld

4.2
#2 of 12 in Historic Sites in Charente
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.

    Here you can walk around like a real Knight what the children find very obviously. In can you on the third floor dress up clothing in all sizes find so certainly do this first before you continue with the visit. So many areas are not open to visit and for the library and the archives you need wachtennop guidance but certainly do. The entrance price is a bit on the high side considering the open quantity. Do especially the caves on the ground floor, is fun to wander around in.

    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.

    Great castle. Entrance fee adults 10 euro, children 5 euro. But for that money you can see a lot of the castle. 3 floors, basement and underground hallways. I die not expect that it was zo interesting. 100 worth the visit.
