Chateau de Lacapelle-Marival

Chateau de Lacapelle-Marival


The Chateau de Lacapelle-Marival was built in the late 13th C. by the younger son of the powerful Haut-Quercy family.

The keep, late in style and of large dimensions, was visibly altered in the 15th C. to increase both its level of comfort and its feudal symbolic value (sentry walk over machicolations, corner watch-towers).
The lord’s apartments, far more spacious than the early keep, were begun in the middle of the 16th C. but completed in the 17th C.: the Cardaillacs, by now titled Marquis, then had the woodwork in various bedrooms decorated with allegorical paintings.

This site does not have its own wibsite but more details can be found on the website for the town of Lacapelle-Marival by clicking here.
