Chateau of ‘Petit Marzac’


The chateau was built by the Sireuil family. Throughout the 100 Years War it became a poit of conflict with the English. In the year 1400 the family of Beynac de Tayac took the chateau and held it until 1623 when it was destroyed by fire and abandoned.

Most of the village below the castle was abandoned as well except for the cloth-maker’s family. Occasionally shepherds and farmers would stay as well. The last inhabitants left at the beginning of the century (I’m guessing the early 1900’s rather than 2000’s)
