This fortress, constructed from the 11th century and completed in the 14th century by Gaston Fébus, represents medieval military architecture with its quadrangular inner courtyard.

Replicas of war machines are displayed here. Guided tours, with guides in period costumes, bring Gaston Fébus to life and discuss the challenges faced by his wife and the initiatory rites of knighthood.

The Keep, with its exhibitions, is accessible via a rampart walk. In summer, every Sunday, jugglers, musicians, and entertainers enliven the site with their performances, offering a vibrant immersion into the past
