Castle Facts:

Location: Vitrac, in the Dordogne departement of France (Aquitaine Region).
Built: Mentioned in 866 under the name of "Castrum de Monte Forti".
Condition: Restoration around 1919.
Ownership / Access: --
Notes: The Château de Montfort is a castle in the French commune of Vitrac in the Dordogne département, part of the region of Aquitaine. The castle clings to a promontory overlooking the Cingle de Montfort (Montfort Meander) on the Dordogne River. Its grandiose setting "aroused the envy of those who wished to rule Périgord" so that its history is a long series of battles and sieges. It was taken and razed to the ground by Simon de Montfort in 1214. The castle was later rebuilt, but again destroyed another three times: during the Hundred Years' War, under Louis XI of France and on the instructions of Henri IV of France. Renovation work was carried out in the 19th century and gives the castle a "whimsical look of a stage setting for light opera.
