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

4.6
#1 of 16 in Things to do in 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.

    Interesting old castle in a pretty valley. Was very sticky and hot when we were there, even though it was overcast. Maybe because it is quite sheltered, meaning little to no breeze. With a couple of hours.

    The history of the castle and the generation of families who built it is particularly interesting. It is not located in a typical location on top of a hillside for defensive purposes. It's stone work is also unique.
