    • Proud sentinel dominating a narrow valley classified protected natural site. The Castle of Gavaudun crowns a rocky outcrop forty meters high. It was first a heretical point of reference before becoming one of the last French bastions during the 100 years war.

      Possessed by large families of regional nobility, mainly Durfort and Lustrac, it is a beautiful example of the best architects of it's time. It belongs to the municipality since 1805.

      To visit the Castle of Gavaudun means taking on the unique entrance carved into the rock to discover the amazing architecture of the fortress, enjoy the breathtaking views of the village and understand its history through various guides and recreational activities for children.

      Treasure hunt included with the visit.

      In summer, the castle offers every Wednesday and Thursday in July and August various activities, workshops, shows.

      Consult our website for the dates of these animations.

    Not quite the Château experience we were anticipating, but was really a revelation to enjoy. Takes some physical stamina, but well worth it for the views alone. Worth a visit, no doubt.

    Stunning views across a beautiful village. We had the place to ourselves as we navigated the many steep and winding steps. Going up was ok, coming down a little scary. You definitely need to heed the...

    We took a visit here and we really enjoyed it. The audio gave the history in English for each stage. Be careful on the steps.The views over the valley below was lovely.

    5 / 5 Reviews posted by peterpiperpickedapec (London, United Kingdom) on 29/08/2018

    A very unusual site with the relatively small castle spectacularly built onto and into a natural rock. Climbs are very steep up very narrow stairs. The views from the top are fantastic. Interesting...
