During various wars, Pompadour has been a stately strategic stronghold, due to its position between Brive and Limoges. Coveted by the local barons, the ancient fortress withstood the attacks of 1026 to 1199. Destroyed by fire in 1200, the castle was rebuilt in the XVth century. After becoming the property of the National Stud in the seventeenth century, the château was inhabited by the staff and the director from 1870 to 2004.
Today the castle is open to visitors, and invites you to discover its architecture, its history, its gardens overlooking the racecourse and the Orangerie Stables.
