Dordogne - Périgord


Home first to prehistoric man and later to the Gauls, Romans and Franks, each of whom left the stamp of their respective civilisations, Périgord is divided into two by the river Dordogne, which formed the historic frontier between France and England during the Hundred Years War and which gave its name to the Département of the Dordogne after the French Revolution. Along its banks are a thousand and one castles steeped in legend, witness to centuries of conquests and the intermixing of cultures. Today Périgord's rich and varied heritage has been faithfully preserved and is here for you to discover. Come and find a past that is still lives on in present-day Périgord, whether in its landscape fashioned by history, in its renowned culinary tradition or in the many cultural and sporting activities that will help make your visit unforgettable.
