Overview

Situated on a rocky spur, the Fortress dominates two valleys. With its Romanic donjon with flat foothills of the XIIth, reshaped in the Renaissance, Miremont joins in the military lineage of the big castles of the Middle Ages.Forgotten during 2 centuries, and after a few years of development, the educational guided tour of this Ancient memorial will allow you to understand(include) the history(story) of fortified castles in Périgord.Panoramic view - troglodytic Shelters - authentic
