In the heart of Albret, between Mézins and Sos, built in the 13th century by the lords of Poudenas, vassals of Edward I Plantagenet, Duke of Aquitaine and King of England, the castle of Poudenas defended the valley of the Gélise, which it overlooks by 50 meters, at the outlet of the Landes Forest.
A military fortification until the 16th century, the castle was then decorated with mullioned windows.
In the 16th century, the former military fortification was transformed into a lordly residence and then, in the 17th century, into an Italian palace. By its architecture and the landscape which surrounds it, the castle of Poudenas is comparable to the villas of Tuscany.
