While archeological evidence shows people have lived on this site for thousands of years, Chateau de Commarque was built sometime in the early 12th century. Situated on a cliff for defensive purposes, the castle has changed hands--and nationalities--several times over the centuries. One of the original lord's descendants now owns it and has restored the grounds. Take a self or guided tour through the ruins, and peek in on the seasonal workshops that relate to some of the castle's important periods.
