Castles and abbeys

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

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

In COMMARQUES, on the cliff overlooking the Grande Beune, the medieval castrum, the Roman style dungeon and the imposing remains stimulate the imagination.

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