Château de l'Herm
"Located near the prehistoric cave of Rouffignac, Château de l’Herm is an authentic masterpiece of Renaissance architecture built between 1500 and
1520 by Jean de Calvimont, a magistrate of the parliament of Bordeaux.
The signs along the tour circuit explain the various occupations of the site previous to this period.
The remarkable spiral staircase that leads up to a palm-shaped vault and the castle's monumental fireplaces are just two wonders of the building's Flamboyant Gothic architecture.
This well-conserved natural setting is known as the setting of the novel Jacquou le Croquant, which was made into a television film shown on TF1 in 1969.
