  • This castle is in ruins, although there was a lot of work and archaeological research for decades.

  • Imposing and grim, the castle stands next to the road; park for free and visit! This castle is a ruin but a substantial one. The entrance fee is only one euro and for that you can wander around within...  more »
  • The medieval castle is in ruins, but the tour is very interesting and helps to understand the history of the Castle and to make us relive this time. For schools, workshop size stone very well conducted. At including this visit in those of Roquetaillade, Cazeneuve. The association which is the castle is dynamic and deserves our encouragement.

  • A very nice book unfortunately degraded by time and especially by the hand of man. The entrance fee is affordable for all budgets and the small group tour is very friendly and Nice. We walk to the four corners of the Castle and admire a beautiful landscape from the top of the towers. We finish the visit by a passage at the shop, just as affordable rates but which nevertheless lack of choice (we must find something wrong ;)). It should be noted that the building is managed by a very dynamic associative structure.

  • Wonderful, to see

  • Disappointed of the Castle while imposing but rather unkempt and rather than "art" exhibitions. In fact, it looks like camp from the village leaders have exposed the creations of the kindergarten and primary school students in these ruins of the XIV. What a pity! But it is especially the guided tour on Wednesday night, which remains 'unforgettable'... Of course, the idea is good: bring visitors to the castle of torches and scripting the visit. Unfortunately, the two young, no doubt full of good intentions, are clumsy and especially very little information about the history and the eventful life of the place. Indeed, you learn nothing about her past and we wander in different parts on his hunger. Once again, what a pity! In summary, if you're hungry for knowledge on this place that could be magical, go your way and visit the castle of Roquetaillade!
