Between Sarlat and Les Eyzies, the eye is drawn to the crenellated towers of Puymartin. This castle built in the 12th century (approx. 1270) was destroyed during the Hundred Years War (1358), and rebuilt around 1450 by Radulphe de Saint-Clar who lived there.
It was at this time that the legend of the White Lady was born. This legend traces the life of Thérèse de Saint-Clar who was imprisoned in the north tower of the Castle by her jealous husband, she died there and was walled there. His ghost has manifested itself to several people. Perhaps you will feel its presence while visiting the Castle …
The Castle has survived the centuries and was partially restored in the 19th century (around 1890) by its descendant, the Marquis de Carbonnier de Marzac, ancestor of the current family: de Montbron. It is in this that Puymartin keeps family goods, furniture, tapestries, paintings and a Mythological Cabinet unique in Périgord.
