  • A whole literary genre was born in this place, and that doesn't happen every day. The tower where he lived, wrote, thought and died Michel de Montaigne is staffed by people who guide visitors with wisdom and gentleness - those who do not know French have a great sheet of room with translation to the Spanish - and except for the furniture is kept such which the Lord of the mountain knew it. Isn't it worth approaching, is that it should be mandatory for all who walk travel through the area.

  • € 8 empty the entry of a tower, it's expensive. No access even to the courtyard of the Castle because the castle is rented for the filming of a TV show! And without being warned. In this tower fortifications so very cramped, even bed (single element of life) is not representative of the era of Montaigne. It's a scam!

  • It is still moving to say that it is in this tower as Montaigne wrote tests, that he lived, and he prayed in the tiny Chapel. Space furniture, minimalist Spartan, the frescoes and the famous beam are surprising.
