La Citadelle

Portrait of the Dordogne (updated August 2007)

The French are more inclined to talk about the Périgord, rather than the administrative department of the Dordogne. Our pictures are of the wider Périgord, the varied countryside spreading north and south from the valley of the River Dordogne, and even into other bordering parts of Aquitaine - the Gironde, and the Landes.

If you want "guide book" material, look in a guidebook. We aim to provide personal impressions and some of the details not found in the guide books. Having said that, the Dordogne is so rich in attractions that only a fraction are usually mentioned or pictured, so you will find quite a lot of new material here.
