Situated in the south Périgord, Monpazier is the smallest commune of the Dordogne (53ha).
It is also an old bastide which offers a protected area among the most beautiful in France.
Classified among the most beautiful villages of France, it obtained in 1991 the rank of Great National Site.
This fortified city of the 13th century, founded in 1284 by Edward 1st of England, has seen about thirty of its buildings classified as Historic Monuments.
It is considered as the model bastide of the 300 bastides of the Great South, preserving its original character despite the years and the wars of Hundred Years and Religion.
In its center, it houses the Place des Cornières and its galleries with Gothic arcades, surrounded by houses built between the Middle Ages and the 17th century.
Under the hall, the grain measures dating from the 15th century can still be seen.
In the commune of Monpazier is also the castle of Saint-Germain.
Admirers of the actor Julien Guiomar can also visit his tomb.
Around it, it would be a pity not to visit the castle of Biron and the villages of Monferrand, Saint-Avit, Molières and Beaumont.
