Châlus-Chabrol Castle Interesting : Michelin's recommendations

Also called the Château du Haut-Châlus, this is where the entrails of Richard the Lionheart are kept; he was mortally wounded here in 1199. Standing on a hill, the castle looks out over the town. Its isolated keep (11C) is imposing: 25m high, 10m in diameter and with walls between 2.5m and 3m thick! The interior consists of a vaulted hall and lower room; further up is the guardroom; the upper levels housed the garrison. A few metres along, the corps de logis, which was extended in the 17C, still has some parts that date from the 11C-13C. It is a fine example of military architecture from feudal times.
