The Gascon castel
of Gramont

First medieval, the Gramont castel was enlarged during the Renaissance. Its French garden, the views it offers of the surrounding landscapes, its furnished rooms, the refined details of its architecture make Gramont one of the essential stages of your stay in Lomagne. Good visit !

A Gascon castel built in the 13th century

The castle is an intrinsic part in the village’s history as the first houses were built for the housekeepers, farmers and gardeners who worked for the Montaut family, who were the lords and owners of the castle.
The village was built from limestone, as can be seen in the ashlar houses. It is worth noting that the quarries were on site and rock was dug directly, and then cut to form the foundations of the castle ramparts.

The gardens consist of a terrace which offers a breathtaking view of the Arrats valley and a magnificent "Sophora Pleureur" in the shape of a mammoth. The courtyard of the castle is adorned with a pond and trees trellised along the facades.

Did you know it ?

In the sixties, Marcelle and Roger Dichamp buy the castle and save it from ruin and restore it to its glory, through an interior decoration. They will then donate it to the Center of Historic Monument.
