Province : Vallée du Lot

  • English
    • Located in Lot-et-Garonne, on the border of Lot and Dordogne, the Château de Bonaguil forms a unique ensemble in Europe, of impressive proportions and in a remarkable state of conservation. Lord Bérenger de Roquefeuil (1448-1530) devoted more than 30 years of his life to building this exemplary fortified castle. A true fortress, it will be inhabited until the French Revolution.

      The commune of Fumel bought it in 1860 to preserve it from possible disappearance. From 1862, the site was listed as a Historic Monument and has since benefited from numerous restoration campaigns. During a guided or independent tour, immerse yourself in the heart of medieval history !

      ANIMATIONS : Throughout the year, the Château de Bonaguil offers various cultural activities in an exceptional setting. Wednesday afternoons in July and August (as well as certain Mondays and Fridays), free thematic activities are offered to children : treasure hunts, archery, creative workshops...

    4 / 5 Reviews posted by FoodieOswestry (Oswestry) on 27/09/2019

    This is an impressive ruin and worth the visit if, as I did, you trip over it by accident but I am not too sure it would be worth driving miles out of your way to find it. There is a car park at the...
