Commarque Castle

Of course, the castle of Commarque is the most famous. Thanks to the co-lordships which succeeded one another from the 12th to the 15th century, the site does not have one ruin but numerous remains of all these castles. The guided tour will explain to you why you built this castle here. In addition, you will be amazed by the beauty of the Beune Valley surrounding. To interest young and old alike, Commarque organizes workshops every summer and offers varied activities throughout the year. You will definitely come back enthusiastic about this site!

Commarque Castle

The Miremont Fortress

More confidential (for the moment), the Miremont Fortress also has well-hidden assets on the heights of Mauzens-et-Miremont. From the D47 you only see part of this building, get closer! Forgotten for two centuries, it is thanks to the efforts of the owners, as well as volunteers who came to help during restoration projects, that the fortress still dominates the rocky spur. To best appreciate this Manaurie valley, do not hesitate to explore hiking trails surrounding this unusual site. Not open to visitors this year.

Herm Castle

And for one last meeting off the beaten track, the Herm castle is ideal! Authentic building planted in the middle of the woods of Rouffignac, it served as a setting for the filming of the television adaptation of Jacquou the Crisp. Place of imagination par excellence. Currently being restored, it exceptionally opens its doors during events such as Château en Fête or Heritage Days.
