The castle of Turenne
From its impregnable cliff of 20 meters high, it dominates the houses of the village of Turenne which surround it.
Only a steep slope, once guarded by three successive gates, gives access to it.
Two towers, the last vestiges of the old buildings, emerge from the platform of 1500 m² which is still surrounded by walls.
To the north, the tower of Caesar is a cylindrical tower of the XIII ° century which was used to receive the signals of the towers of relays of Nazareth and the Gardelle towards the Limousin and the Périgord.
In the south, the so-called tower of the Donjon or the Treasury, where money was beaten, dates from the fourteenth century, on the eve of the Hundred Years War.
