Ruins of the castle of Mardogne, French Heritage monument to Joursac

The Castle erected in the 12th and 13th centuries remain only a few ruins, after the fire of 1720 and the reuse of materials by the inhabitants. These ruins consist in a Dungeon with one of the masters four walls, a vaulted cellar, a few sections of four main walls in the middle of which was a court and a large square tower with two superimposed intact vaults to the other. Each floor includes a piece. A tank cemented with lime and crushed tile stood in the courtyard of the Castle. The great wall remains partly with its path. Contrary to what exists in the dungeons tours of the region, the Tower of Mardogne was his front door on the ground floor and not at the level of the floor.
