Our rating: 6.60
Overall rating:
Well-preserved medieval castle on a high cliff above the Dordogne River. It took an active part in the battles and played an important role in the Hundred Years War, when it was captured by the British. The border between the French and the British was on the river. On the other hand, on the similar rock, stands Beyna Castle, the eternal rival of Castelnau Castle. During the Hundred Years War, the French were in Beynac.
