Description

Part medieval, part Classical, the castle remains the jewel in the crown of the old bastide - the walled town that kept watch over the lands of the dukes of Duras and the Dropt valley. The comprehensive tour takes in the marshals' room, dungeons, kitchens, and the duchess's apartments, decorated with 17C woodwork and completely restored... not to mention four museums dedicated to palaeontology, vines and wine, grain and, lastly, folk arts and traditions. Enjoy a magnificent panoramic view from the top of the tower.
