Château de Montréal, Historical Monument

Located 7 km from Mussidan, the elegant Montreal Castle overlooks the Crempse valley.
It's a Renaissance château with a facade adorned with colonnettes and mullioned windows, completely surrounded by 12th-13th century ramparts and fortifications.

The Renaissance chapel houses exceptional statuary, including statues of the 12 apostles, a recumbent statue and an oratory. It was built to house a relic of Christ's crown of thorns found on the body of General Talbot at the battle of Castillon. 12th-13th century underground passageways.

17th-, 18th- and 19th-century salons display a collection of Périgord portraits and remarkable Aubusson tapestries depicting the fables of La Fontaine.

Gardens awarded the "remarkable garden" label

Outside the ramparts, the Parc de Montréal features a star-shaped bower that was replanted following the destruction caused by the 1999 storm. Inside the ramparts, you'll find an Italian-style "low garden" planted with white and mauve Yew and Syriacus hibiscus, a formal garden on two terraces, one with roses, Nepeta and blue sage, the other with red and yellow dahlias, and a small garden with fascines. The walls of the outbuildings are trellised with white and yellow climbing roses.
