Commarque Castle

Built in the 12th and 14th centuries in Dordogne, the Commarque castle is probably the most complex medieval ensemble in Périgord. It was in fact a ""co-lordship"": the lordly families lived in the different towers of this fortified village.It is also the most curious castle complex in southern Périgord with its complex defenses, its successive moats, its concentric ramparts and the dizzying verticalism of its keep, 80 meters high, in a beautiful setting overlooking a preserved and protected natural setting in the Vézère valley .
