Castles and Abbeys

The Dordogne is the "land of a thousand castles".

The castle of CASTELNAUD allows a better understanding of the Middle Ages, fortifications, machines and weapons of the Hundred Years War. Your children will love it!

At COMMARQUES, on the cliff overlooking the Grande Beune stream, you can discover the medieval tower, the roman style dungeon, the imposing vestiges to stimulate the imagination .

In CADOUIN the roman style church was consecrated in 1154. It radiates the Cistercian spirituality of the 12th century. The cloister, built in the 15th and 16th centuries, is a masterpiece of flamboyant gothic art.
