Built on top of a cliff that dominates the village of Beynac-et-Cazenac, the castle of Beynac boasts views fit for a King. Where
once attacking armies crossed the Dordogne river below, now you will see the occasional canoeist drifting by.
Witness to countless sieges and conflicts during the Middle Ages and the Hundred Years’ War between France and England
during the 14th and 15th centuries, Beynac castle was the frontline dividing the opposing forces. This strategic stronghold
is stunningly preserved and remains one of the most impressive fortified châteaux of the Dordogne Valley.
