Photographer's Note

The Acropolis of Perigord, this is the nickname of Domme, one of the most beautiful villages in France, a french label.
This is one of the most famous villages of Perigord.

It is actually a "bastide" - a town built in once, on the will of one man - whose construction was ordered by Philip the Bold in the thirteenth century on a cliff overlooking the Dordogne.
Since its construction, the village is experiencing a turbulent history, because of his situation. Indeed, it allows Domme to control the river traffic.
Thus, during the Hundred Years War, the village attracts the interest of English. So he changed hands several times before becoming permanently French in 1437.

Since The Belvédère de la Barre, which dominates 150 meters above the river, you can admire one of the most beautiful landscapes in the region. All around, wooded plateau. The Dordogne is lazily flowing in the midst of grassland, cereals and plantation of orchards, walnut trees, vines and tobacco.
