This is how castles should look, with turrets, largely intact walls and a commanding position over the village. The castle was once home to France’s Empress Eugénie after her husband, Napoleon III, lost the French throne in 1871. Parts of the movie El Cid (1961), starring Charlton Heston, were filmed here.
