Amazing Experience

Standing at the top of a vertiginous cliff, dominating the village of Beynac-et-Cazenac, the castle of Beynac is a stone sentry who has watched over the Dordogne for more than 9 centuries.

To visit Beynac is to cross 5 centuries of the History of France, in the footsteps of Richard Coeur de Lion, Eleanor of Aquitaine, Simon de Montfort and the Hundred Years War.

From the defensive rigor of its 12th century keep to the Renaissance staircase passing by the very impressive Salle des Etats des Baronnies du Périgord from the 15th, the 13th Cuisine and its exceptional barbican, its exceptional state of conservation offers you an unforgettable journey in the heart of the Middle Ages.
