Cadouin, a small medieval village renovated with taste, is the country Bastides on the border of Perigord Black and Purple Périgord, between the Salard and Bergerac. The hilly and wooded area, the forest of Bessede and water Bélingou drew the Cistercians. Over the centuries, pilgrimages around the Shroud have been living the village. A great hall, paved streets invite you to stroll and explore the heritage. Classified as a major site in Aquitaine (only three in the Dordogne), this village is a must and full of charm.


  • Abbey Cadouin:
  • Cadouin Abbey was founded in 1115 by Gerald de Salles and affiliated to the Cistercian order in 1119. It was recently listed as World Heritage by UNESCO under the roads to Saint Jacques de Compostela, which gives it a new awareness and a significant interest to tourists. A sober decor, poor lighting contrast with the magnificence of the cloister can be seen from inside the church.
  • The Abbey is a pure masterpiece of the 12th century. The cloister of late Gothic of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries is to visit. The rich carvings on the capitals, keystones, which materialize the sins and virtues in the stone. From both sides of the chair of the abbot, two high-reliefs tell the procession of monks and the road to Calvary. The four gates are used to compare the Gothic and Renaissance.
  • The hall of the 15th century, with its framed original star very well preserved, seems lost on the main square of the abbey.


  • Flowers: annually May 8 a big market for flowers, shrubs.
  • Summer:
  • Guided theatrical candlelight.
  • Medieval Festival in August as part of the festival Valley Dropt.
  • Market Night every Monday evening, with local products and music. This night market attracts nearly 1,000 people from snacking, dining on large tables available.


  • St. Avitus-Sénieur (7 km): another world heritage of UNESCO.
  • Sainte-Croix-de-Beaumont, Belvès, Limeuil Monpazier, Beaumont, Montferrand.
