TURENNE and its castle
Bearing the name of a powerful viscount who reigned over Limousin, Périgord and Quercy, TURENNE has kept many traces of its history.
From the top of its promontory from which one enjoys an exceptional view stretching from the mountains of Auvergne to the Marches du Midi Toulousain, the citadel reigned, free, for more than 700 years until the cession to the Crown in 1738.
