Built between the 13th and 17th centuries by a powerful baronial family, the prestigious Château de Castelnau controlled an area of fertile valleys in the Haut-Quercy region. The castle is a revealing testament to the evolution of fortified architecture that was forced to adapt to the progress made in artillery during the 15th and 16th centuries.

Between 1896 and 1932, Jean Mouliérat, a tenor at the Opéra Comique in Paris, brought it back to life and introduced a large, eclectic collection of furniture and objets d'art.
