Heritage of Montagnac

The town has a long and chequered history. It suffered badly during the French Wars of religion, with many of its buildings being destroyed. And, its castle, Château de Lavagnac, was demolished on Richelieu's orders in the 17th century and then rebuilt in the style of that time. However, there are still a number of monuments to see, and the town retains a charming, traditional ambience. Among the old buildings which are worth a look are the Church of Saint André, the Chapel of Saint Martin de la Garrigue, the Chapel of the Penitents, the Chapel Notre Dame de la Peyrière, the Hotel de Pegat and the Hotel de Rat.

Visit the Museum of Patrimony

Other points of interest include the Museum of Patrimony, and original features such as an old oil lamp mounted on a building, and the remains of the fortifications designed to keep Montagnac safe from invaders. Any stroll around the town will reveal interesting sights, and talking to the local families will be informative too as Montagnac is rich in legends and history.
