The dungeon

Only the keep, the ramparts (12th century) and the door towers (13th century) remain from the Montignac castle.

The castle was partially demolished during the 18th and 19th centuries.

It was built on a promontory overlooking the Charente and at the crossroads of major roadways.

It forms an imposing mass from which the view extends over the Charente valley to Angoulême.

The remains were listed as historic monuments on May 28, 1962.

The current fairground corresponds to the farmyard.

The priory Saint-Etienne built in 1030 was definitively demolished in 1960, and its stones were, in part, used for the construction of various buildings.
