Fénelon Castle

Feudal fortress of the Périgord Noir

The castle of Fénelon

feudal fortress of the black Périgord

Enrolled in a double enclosure, the Fénelon Castle to the roof in lauze rises its powerful silhouette above the Valley of the Dordogne. It is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful castles of the Périgord. He was the birthplace of François de Salignac de la Mothe Fénelon (1651-1715), Archbishop of Cambrai, tutor of the children of France and author of the "Adventures of Telemmaque". Built on a succession of Rocky terraces, he skillfully mixes the Warrior character of the middle ages with the elegance of the Renaissance.

Fénelon is one of the few monuments of Sarladais to preserve its roof of lauzes. You can admire, a collection of weapons and armor, a beautiful furniture and objets d'art from the XVth to the eighteenth centuries. Free and shady parking.

Allow 1 hour to 1 h 30 for a complete free visit (outdoor and indoor).
