The Château de Jumilhac formed on the boundaries of Limousin and Périgord (just like Saint-Yrieix 12 kilometres away) a line of defence against the attacks by the Saracens, Visigoths, Normans and the English (1190), not forgetting of course the 100 Years’ War. Rebuilt and enlarged on several occasions it was completely restored during the Renaissance and adorned (1600) with the roofing on which its reputation is founded today. These cones, turrets and pyramids, decorated with crest tiles boasting manorial allegories are unique in France and elevate the Jumilhac Château to the status of the "black pearl" of Haut Périgord.
