Château de Commarque, Les Eyzies 🇫🇷

In the Périgord, an ancient region of France that corresponds roughly with the modern Dordogne department, the Château de Commarque constituted an important strategic location during the Hundred Years’ War. It was also the site of one of the conflict’s most brutal battles, the tragedy of which has echoed down the ages. During the fight, the young love of the Earl of Commarque’s daughter was beheaded. However, it is not the ghost of the young man that wanders the ruins, but that of his horse, locked in a perpetual search for its master.
