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.
