3. Bonaguil 

Location: Périgord

Located on a rocky spur between the valleys of the Thèze and Lémance Rivers to the far south of the Dordogne départment, this military fortress was the last of the fortified castles built in France. Bonaguil was entirely refurbished between 1480 and 1510 to incorporate the latest defensive systems of the late Middle-Ages. For this reason, it was never attacked and was only ever used as a residence by its owners.
