Château de Castelnau-Bretenoux

  • От Рокамадура — 26 км, 38 минут на машине (примерно 3.24 € € на бензин, платных дорог нет)


With a square keep and
seigneurial quarters, this
château is a resolutely
defensive building. It was
founded in the 12th century
by the barons of Castelnau,
and clear traces of its military
past can still be seen in its
elegant outline. Remodelled
in the 16th and 17th centuries,
then abandoned in the 18th,
the castle was restored in the
late 19th century, with funds
provided by Jean Mouliérat,
the famous tenor. It now
contains a fine collection of
paintings and furniture.
