Excideuil

Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Dordogne

The common Excideuil is located 31 km north-east of Périgueux, Périgord Vert. At the prestigious 11th century castle, which strikes the eye of entry and the sensitivity of the walker by its powerful and harmonious architecture, meets the contemporary design of the place. The tone is set. Glance. A fountain, as before, but the concept is modern, even if the paw of a bear claw tutelary water. It echoes with no dissonance at the fountain Swan Place Bugeaud, smelling the 19th century. A bench is also there, inviting the rest or the palaver. On the slats, the spirit of the Giraut Borneil illustrates troubadour, converse with that of a poet of the Oulipo. And for the person who ventures through the streets where discrete hidden architectural treasures weathered by time and will not reach its city limits, the wonder and delight will await you. It crosses the Loue to bright scales via a bridge of any concrete, whose clean lines without lies restore the symbols of light and water. Excideuil: city mirror, delicious country, which unlike Narcissus, do not drown in the contemplation of a sterile freeze frame, but is observed to evolve better, live better.
