  • This 13th century castle redesigned in the XV th century (under Charles VII and Louis XI) remains an educational gem to understand a castle fort. one of the last built in France. The guide Antoine Rego archaeologist is fascinating; He continues to search for the domestic objects of these times. This construction due to a megalomaniac baron to defend the seigneurial privileges of the middle ages makes us think over this period. The adjoining village is remarkable and we can eat at a decent price, and it's good.

  • Beautiful castles and very large, almost complete and very well kept. It gives us a testimony and a glimpse of themselves that could be the most beautiful castle of the same era. A must for a family outing.

  • Superb Castle in excellent condition. I'm regularly bringing friends who come to the area. Remarkable, very well maintained site. Great tour. The castle was never attacked, which explains his State. A mandatory stop in batch and the Garonne.

  • Visited in 2014 on the recommendation of a nice local that we met at the shopping center not far from here. We are from Australia and didnt really know what was in the area, but we are grateful for the information that was given to us. Its quite amazing to see these castles from a bygone era. We have nothing like this at home. Simply amazing.
