Château de Biron - Site Majeur d'Aquitaine

  • English
    • Siege of one of four baronies of Périgord, Biron's castle occupies a strategic position to the border of Périgord and of Agenais.
      Its history is bound to the greatness of a family, the Gontaut-Biron, which held the fielf for eight hundred years. Every century, between the XIIth and the XVIIIth, left its imprint, evoking the adventures of this monumental building: donjon of the XIIth, the chapel with double floor, apartments the Renaissance, the impressive arched kitchens, the room of States … Of this incredible juxtaposition of buildings results an exceptional architectural ensemble, of quite particular charm.
