“Incredible views across the city of Bordeaux and the Garonne river. You have to climb 231 steps to get to the top so I'd say that it's not ideal attraction for those with a fear of heights!”

“Le château, son décor La création d'un décor royal Le château de Pau, monument historique devenu Musée national à la fin des années 1920, abrite des collections aussi riches que diverses : peintures, sculptures, dessins, estampes, porcelaines, tapisseries, mobilier… Le décor intérieur du monument, demeure royale entièrement réaménagée sous la Monarchie de Juillet (1830-1848), témoigne d'un véritable programme artistique contribuant à l'affirmation d'une légitimité politique. Objets et œuvres d'art, régulièrement acquis pour les collections depuis le début du XXe siècle, évoquent l'histoire politique, religieuse et artistique du règne du premier des Bourbons, Henri IV”

Monument / Landmark
“Brantôme is the stunning medieval village of Bourdeilles which sits on the edge of the river Dronne and boasts a chateau, a moulin (mill), a medieval centre and a panoramic viewpoint. Its main feature is its chateau (actually two castles side-by-side). There is a fortress dating back to the 13th and 14th centuries which has defensive walls and an octaganol donjon 35 meters high. Within the walls there is also a second chateau built in the Renaissance style during the 16th century. This chateau is richly decorated and includes the Salon Doré (golden room) and a furniture collection of the 15th to 19th centuries. Inside the castle walls is a garden area laid out in traditional formal French style - avenues of trees, clipped box and neatly laid out grassy areas. ”
