The Château of La Rochefoucauld - Tourism in the Charente

Known locally as the "Pearl of the Angoumois", the Château of La Rochefoucauld was built in the 11th century and then modified many times during the following centuries. Of Renaissance style, this remarkable building magnificently overhangs the River Tardoire. The Château, which is open to the public, features a square keep, a main courtyard, a spiral staircase, furnished rooms, a Guards Room, the boudoir of Marguerite de Valois, a library and a Gothic chapel.
