Château de Pompadour

Malika Turin

Rebuilt in the 15th century on the feudal mound, Château de Pompadour was remodelled in the 18th century. In 1745, it was given the title of Marquise to the famous favourite of Louis XV. Partly destroyed during the Revolution, it was destroyed by fire in the 19th century.
All that remains of this important fortress is the south wing and the outer wall. The facade, with its machicolated battlements, is flanked by large pepper-pot towers.
A gatehouse leads to a wide terrace surrounded by moats and flanked by seven low towers. It currently houses a stud farm, first royal in 1761 and then national in 1872.

Château du Verdier

Cris Bastiane

Built in the 15th century, this château was the home of the Lubersac family until 1725. Later, in 1830, the estate was bequeathed to Ernest de Chabrignac. It was he who, in the 1840s, undertook a major restoration, giving it the elegant appearance we know today. Today, the group of south towers and the square tower to the north remain from the feudal castle.

The château was the birthplace in 1853 of Abbé Mugnier, renowned for his involvement in Parisian social and literary life.
