About the place:

Prayssac is a commune in the Lot department in south-western France. It lies on the banks of the Cérou, which flows westward through the northern part of the commune. The first reliable record dates back to 1173, when it was called Praesseca. It has been occupied by humans since antiquity and there are archaeological remains from Roman times, but Prayssac did not emerge as an important settlement until three castles were built here: Mazerolles Castle (at that time named Puyguilhem), around 1100, then Castelnau de Plagnes (12th century) and lastly Montbrun, which dominates all other buildings, because its height reaches 100 meters.

In 1652 the town was pillaged and set on fire by the Protestants during their uprising. In 1720, Jean-Jacques des Baux gave Prayssac to his daughter as a gift upon her marriage with Louis de Noailles (1659–1746). This alliance between two powerful families strengthened this area of France’s influence over Europe at that time. The castle still served for some time as a prison, where members of both noble houses were locked up throughout various periods in history.

Other must-see landmarks are the Château de La Roque, built during Roman times as protection for Gallo-Roman city Broneacum and  Château de Montfort, which was built in the 12th century by Viscount Pons and his wife, Lady Garsenda.

The town today is an important tourist destination, gathering many visitors each year who are interested in its rich culture and fascinating past.
