  • The castle of Castelnau-Bretenoux: Castle was built in the 13th century by Gicard Alamon, and rebuilt by Lévis in the 15th century. This castle was rated historical monuments in 1966. Located on the Valley of the Dordogne, the Castle has magnificent panoramic view from Beynac, Marqueyssac to Roque Gageac. The castle of Castelnau-Bretenoux is open for the public to visit in 1985 with another name "medieval War Museum". It also kept a large collection of weapons, armor, medieval widgets ... Models and audiovisual tapes, give visitors specific insights about the attack and defense of diversity of a medieval castle. Each year, the Castle attracts more than 220,000 visitors (of which 20,000 are students, students).

  • Tour of the Castle at the price of €7.5 and with a guide who knows very well his subject. The view at the top of the tower is beautiful.

  • Very pretty Castle which is worth a visit. Paid visit with or without a guide. (guide makes you visit the Interior of the Castle "living rooms") For the visit with the guide too much description on the last owner than on the lives of the unfortunate Castle.

  • Beautiful castle that from the wide surroundings. Unfortunately only a small portion restored which of course is understandable given the cost.
