Château de Castelnaud

Recommended
The Château de Castelnaud, a genuine medieval fortress complete with machicolated keep, surrounding wall and main building, offers a panoramic view over the Céou and Dordogne valleys. Entirely devoted to the art of war in the Middle Ages, scale models, videos, an artillery room adorned with numerous sorts of weapons (swords, cannons, crossbows, catapults, battering rams, etc) and war machines like the trébuchet, all recreate the turbulent atmosphere of the past.
