In the footsteps of Richard the Lionheart at the château de Montbrun

In the footsteps of Richard the Lionheart at the château de Montbrun

Remarkably preserved and benefitting from all the modern comforts, the château de Montbrun hosted King Richard the Lionheart during the Middle Ages.

In the Limousin region, this fortified castle, anchored along the Dournaujou river, is located between Limoges and Angoulême. After the death of King Richard the Lionheart, its 4 massive towers and dungeon were preserved and are reflected in a large pond since the 12th century. Having become a historical monument in 1946, Montbrun just underwent an important renovation, without loosing any of its Medieval cachet.
