Dordogne - Périgord


Rock paintings on cave walls, Gallic dry-stone huts (bories), Roman remains, Romanesque churches, rock shelters (cluzeaux), round towers in the French style, square towers in the English style, fortified towns (bastides) and castles...
They all have something to tell us about the spiritual life of the caveman, or wars and religious life in the Middle Ages. Everything here reminds one of a history shaped by men's love for this enticing land, where man meets his match in nature.
