One of the most prestigious monuments in Périgord
Fénelon Castle, with its three fortifi ed enclosures, is one of the most imposing monuments in the Black Périgord. Paradoxically, its history has rarely been studied.
This publication allows the reader to discover along the illustrations a heritage site of ever growing historical importance and architectural wealth. Feudal castrum in the 11th century, Cathar lair, the powerful fortress saw the birth of Fénelon on the 6th of August, 1651.
Fénelon, the famous author of The Adventures of Telemachus, was a major source of inspiration for the Enlightenment philosophers. The castle is a brilliant homage to many tragic and glorious pages of French history. The Delautre family restores with energy and passion this fl atstone-roofed fortress, and keeps the memory of Fénelon “the Great” alive.
