Château de Beynac

The most authentic feudal Fortress in the Périgord
Since 1115, Le Château de Beynac, the most authentic and emblematic fortress in the Périgord has been looking over the village of Beynac-et-Cazenac (listed as one of The Most Beautiful Villages in France), the Dordogne River (part of the World Network of Biosphere Reserves), and of course the most unique Dordogne Valley.
To tour this castle is to span five centuries of French history on the traces of Richard the Lionheart, Simon de Montfort and the Hundred Years War.
From the defensive austerity of the 12th century dungeon to the 17th century Renaissance staircase, from the 15th century State Room (200 m2) to the 13th century kitchen and the barbacane, the castle's exceptional state of preservation offers you an unforgettable voyage back into the heart of Medieval Times.
From the top of the 14th century dungeon, 152 metres over a sheer drop into the Dordogne River, you'll enjoy a breathtaking view over the valley of the five castles. Enjoy the visit!
