Take a tour of Beynac Castle in France – part of the World’s Greatest Attractions travel video series by GeoBeats.
Beynac castle, on the Dordogne River, has an idyllic setting on the edge of a limestone cliff.
This medieval fortification is located in an extraordinarily picturesque location.
It was the barons of Beynac who decided to build a structure that was strategically crucial and defensively important.
With double moats, crenellated walls, and tall keeps it more than served its purpose.
Today it is among France's most well preserved castles and a historic landmark of Dordogne.
Because of the sheer prowess it exudes coupled with the gorgeous surroundings, it is often called the "King of Perigord".
