Really impressive castle with wonderful views. The knight show is great, especially if you love horses. Lots of other stuff going on but you need to understand French very well, obviously. Free English guide leaflet given on the door.

One of the most interesting castles we visited. It feels like something right out of King Arthur. Just a pity there was no knights show that day.

A well presented historical attraction. The walk up from the car park isn't terribly arduous and the signposted walk around the castle is educational and enjoyable. There are some great views over the nearby town of Murol from the battlements. This is well worth a...More
