Château de Gavaudun
The Château de Gavaudun is a castle in the village of Gavaudun (Lot-et-Garonne, France) on the river Lède, near the Périgord noir region. It was built on a rocky spur and overhangs the river. The lofty 13th century keep rises 25m above the level of the rock.
The bishop of Périgueux besieged it and destroyed it for the first time in 1165.
During the Hundred Years' War it was of central importance in the conflict between England and France.
