Château de Montal

Château de Montal

Twenty-six kilometres from Rocamadour, visit a jewel of the French Renaissance with its unique sculptured decorations.

History of the monument

The elegance of the first Renaissance. The façades of the Château de Montal feature delicate sculptures evoking the life and thought of Jeanne de Balsac. 
A monument in peril rescued. Maurice Fenaille, a wealthy industrialist and patron of the arts, bought the property in ruins in the early 20th century. He restored the sculpted façade working with Rodin's disciples and decorated the rooms on the lower floor with a rich collection of furniture and hangings.


To ensure the safety of our visitors, the monument is strictly applying the security measures decided by the french authorities.
The monument is fully opened.
