Château de Biron

The vast Château de Biron was founded in the 11th century to command the northern approaches to the Agenais.

Over the course of eight centuries, the Gontaud (or Gontaut) Biron family built, expanded and rebuilt this castle. Since 1928, Château de Biron has been listed as a historical monument by the French Ministry of Culture.


Château de Biron is in Biron in the valley of the Lède, near the Lot River. The GR36 links Biron with Monpazier, 8km to the north.
