Château de la Reine Margot (Château de Saint-Projet) is located in Saint-Projet, Tarn-et-Garonne department of the Occitania region in southern FranceMassif Central.

This château was built on a Gallo-Roman tumulus at the end of the 13th century.

During the Wars of Religion in September 1585, Queen Margot took refuge in this castle, and after her departure, the room was walled up, only to be discovered by chance in 1990, along with all her furniture.

In June 1622, Louis XIII stopped off at the château before waging battle against the Protestants. Now open to the public, the château retraces this historic fresco in rooms decorated with 16th and 17th century furniture.
