Places / villages in the Dordogne

Every place in the Dordogne has its own charm. Ordinary peasant village to real tourist center. The center with the church usually central, old buildings with beautiful façades and on the outskirts recent construction. In many places one can find a boulangerie (bakery) for your daily fresh bread, a Boucherie (butcher) et charcuterie (cold meats) and a grocery shop (small shop). And in many places the weekly market. Often the local cafe where a tobacco license.
 
As a major tourist centers are at least the bastide places to criticize. Fortified towns built in the Hundred Years War. With a clear construction of the gate to the main center square. Domme, perched on the cliffs with fantastic views over the Dordogne of the Single de Montfort to the kastelendal around Castelnaud and Beynac. Beaumont, the building plan shows an H as the one from above, with the fortified church of St. Front from the 13th-century. Monpazier, even completely walled bastide from 1284, with a lovely square. Arcades (arcades) surrounded the square. Villefranche-du-Perigord, one of the oldest bastide places in France. Galleries around a symmetrical square. And what about Brantôme, known as the Venice of the Périgord. The old town is situated on an island in the Dronne. St.-Jean-de-Côle, is on the list of Les Plus Beaux Villages de France (the best locations in France), ocher houses in a maze of narrow streets. For photo enthusiasts Collonges-la-Rouge, a place built in red limestone, with pepperpot towers and roofs, which at sunset unique platelet yields. Belvès, perched on an old market hall in the center. Known for the Fête Médiévale (medieval festival), the Bach Festival (organ concerts) and the small streets going back to the era Troglodytique. The places around the pre-historic life, Les-Eyzies-de-Tayac and Montignac.
