Chateau Carignan   Chateau Carignan Logo

The Lordship of Carignan known since the eleventh century was built on the site of a Roman villa. It was given by King Charles VII of France Jean Poton Xaintrailles, comrade in arms of Joan of Arc.

In 1452 Poton Xaintrailles rebuilt the present castle and a year later in 1453 he crushed the English troops led by the Constable Talbot at the battle of Castillon, battle that ended the Hundred Years War and attached it to the Kingdom of Aquitaine La France.

Became Governor of Aquitaine and on good terms with the Bishop Pey Berland, pastor of Bouliac, it avoids a civil war beginning in Bordeaux between supporters of the English and French troops victorious.
