With the castle of Commarque, Périgord has its song of gesture:
Between the Twelfth and Thirteenth Century epic poets sing the deeds of the Knights of the Ninth or Tenth Centuries and take an interest in the COMMARQUE family, in Périgord, by recording in several chansons de geste the exploits of its founder, Bovon, and of his two sons, Girart and Guiëlins.
Today, the family of Commarque is, of all those who, in the Middle Ages, inspired epics, one of the last to subsist and, to remain on the land of his ancestors still dominated by the dungeon of XII Century
Commarque will make you relive all the history of France since prehistoric times, until the medieval time while passing by the troglodyte habitats.
