Address Castle Roquetaillade Roquetaillade, 33210 Mazères, France

The history of the castle of Roquetaillade begins at the dawn of humanity, when there were only caves and a rocky outcrop.

In prehistoric times, the first humans moved into the site, which was dotted with natural caves and a rocky outcrop, ideal for protection and for making flints, hence the name “Roquetaillade” (literally “Rock-Cutting”).

The first castle was built around the 8th century, some remains are still visible today. It is in the XIVth century that the construction of the current castle begins, renovated by the famous Viollet-le-Duc in the XIXth century.

The building of Roquetaillade is part of the first emblematic buildings classified as historical monuments in 1840 by Prosper Mérimée. Surprisingly, the castle has belonged to the same family for more than a thousand years, which has changed its name only three times during this long period.
