What to do in Castelnaud-la-Chapelle?


We have already mentioned the Château de Castelnaud and the Château des Milandes. The first is a magnificent monument dating from the 13th century, and classified as a historical monument since 1966. Perched on the edge of a bank of the Dordogne, and watching over the Céou, it offers an absolutely breathtaking view of Beynac and La Roque-Gageac. For lovers of castles, Castelnaud is full of them! We can mention the Castelnaud and Milandes castles, but also Fayrac, Lacoste, Péchaud, or Chignac.

But if war is not your cup of tea, and if you are looking for religious silence, opt instead for the numerous local churches and chapels: the castral chapel of Lacoste, the church of Saint-Jacques-le-Mineur, the chapel of Fayrac, the church of Saint-Blaise de la Chapelle-Péchaud…

Without forgetting the museums: the museum of Falconry and its video room, the Josephine Baker museum in the castle of Milandes, or the museum of the war in the Middle Ages, in the castle of Castelnaud. The latter offers visitors authentic weapons, war machines and medieval animations. For the gourmets, there is also the Ecomuseum of the walnut of Périgord (mill of Vielcroze).


But Castelnaud-la-Chapelle does not only offer you nuts! The gastronomy of the Dordogne is waiting for you to be tasted in full teeth. So, whether in Castelnaud, Sarlat, or Paulhiac, why deprive yourself? The gastronomy of the Périgord is particularly famous for its exceptional foie gras, but also for its succulent duck breast. Let’s not forget the Quercy lamb, the truffles, and the perfumed ceps.

For wine, we can mention the delicious Bergerac wines, while Rocamadour and Cabécou will delight the cheese lovers (those who do not have a sensitive nose!). Finally, for vegetarians, there are always the delicious Perigord strawberries: Gariguette, Cirafine, Charlotte… A tip: before going to the market in Castelnaud, prepare a large basket!
