Chateau de Commarque, Les Eyzies-de-Tayac-Sireuil

While archeological evidence shows people have lived on this site for thousands of years, Chateau de Commarque was built sometime in the early 12th century. Situated on a cliff for defensive purposes, the castle has changed hands--and nationalities--several times over the centuries. One of the original lord's descendants now owns it and has restored the grounds. Take a self or guided tour through the ruins, and peek in on the seasonal workshops that relate to some of the castle's important periods.

  • My first image of Commarque, she emerged through trees by visiting the site of Cap Blanc. I was drawn to this castle. I tried to see it more closely. In this small magical Valley that wakes up from a long agony, all is delight for lovers of history, old stones and nature. Away from the flaws of modernity, this site is simply magical.

  • Many beautiful ruins to see absolutely. The Dungeon is intact and the view from the top is magnificent. The tour lasts more than an hour and it's sports! You will have the opportunity to see also Troglodyte Habitat. From the parking lot you will have 600 meters on a stone path. There is parking for the disabled but the visit of the Castle will be possible for them!
