The Château de St-Ferriol is a Late Medieval - Early Renaissance château fort in southern France. It is situated on a ridge, overlooking valleys to the North and South, in the heart of the village of St-Ferriol, near the towns of Quillan and Esperaza in the Aude Département and the Languedoc-Roussillon Région.
The Château de St-Ferriol was built in the sixteenth century towards the end of the period of medieval castle building. Gunpowder and firearms had rendered traditional castle building techniques obsolete, and medieval style castles were still being built only in remote areas - like Scotland and the Languedoc - where local wars still raged.
The Château was listed (inscrit as a Monument Historique) in 1999 and is currently undergoing renovation so is not open to the general public, but three estate properties are available for long or short rentals.
