Chateau de Commarque, Les Eyzies-de-Tayac-Sireuil
(4.7/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • You must love walk to visit the site to go up to the Dungeon... but what a beautiful view!

  • The site is very interesting from a historical point of view. The different stages of the visit are explained in a booklet provided free of charge but sometimes difficult to imagine, that's why I recommend the tour if it is possible (not available every day). For children, the visit ends in "time" games very fun, so entertaining that the "big kids" played them also (:-)) Attention to people with mobility difficulties, the site is quite steep.

  • The castle is located in the middle of the forest... to visit the Castle added a pleasant walk in the Woods!

  • Great day out. Well worth a visit if you like castles, caves, or anything medievel.
  • Super cool. ancient drawings of horses are still on the castle walls
  • 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.
  • Interesting for Children and Adults alike.
  • The best site we have seen so far in the region. This site has 3 layers of human civilisation starting 15,000 years go (or more). We spent over 2 hours here, and could have spent more time if we weren't already so tired from sightseeing all day. The site is also special because of constant flowing spring water that was revered by the pagans and then the church years later. Don't miss this site.
