Château Peyrelongue has been going through history for over two centuries. Derived from the local dialect, its name refers to the “Pierre Longue” which stood at the entrance to the property, at the crossroads. Menhirs marked out the pilgrimage routes to Saint Jacques de Compostela over the centuries.
