Château de Duras - Tourism in the Lot-et-Garonne

An impregnable fortress in the Middle Ages, then a country retreat during the Age of Enlightenment, the Château de Duras (built 12th to 18th centuries) is today a listed historic monument.

Towering over the Dropt valley, this former residence of the Dukes of Duras contains some 30 rooms showcasing the building's history and past splendour. The visit takes in the Salle des Trois Maréchaux, the dining room with terrace, the Salle aux Secrets, kitchen, bakery, dungeons, wells and Salle de la Charpente.

The basement contains a museum about the archaeology and ethnology of the Pays de Duras area.

Don't miss the superb 360° panoramic view from the top of the tower!

A busy programme of cultural events takes place there throughout the year, including symphonic concerts, plays, art exhibitions and night-time visits.
