Forteresse de Najac, Najac

(340+ reviews on the web)
Castle
In the Gothic chapel at Forteresse de Najac, stumble across a secret corridor hidden within the walls, linking the Romanesque tower to the spot where you stand. After making your escape, find the last of the Knights Templar, who were imprisoned behind these walls. Also known as Château de Najac, this 13th-century royal fortress brings you closer to the first English occupation, the Albigensian Crusade, the Hundred Years' War, the peasants' revolts, and the French Revolution. From the castle’s exterior, imagine the archers of old aiming through the tall, thin archères, the largest of any castle in the world at a height of 6.8 m (22.3 ft). Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Forteresse de Najac by using our Najac itinerary builder.
