Monpazier, a magnificent bastide of the Dordogne
As soon as you enter the village, you will be amazed by the beauty of the buildings and the special atmosphere that emanates from them. Among its architectural specialities, the bastide town of Monpazier remains the most impressive. Its particularity is to have remained intact since its founding in 1284.
It must be known that its remarkable orthogonal appearance influenced the greatest architects.
The timeless and unique soul of Monpazier has remained preserved over the centuries.
Indeed, the city has always made it a point of honor to refuse the structural and aesthetic changes of the place. Traders and locals are constantly fighting against the opening of new structures such as a supermarket, not to distort the charm of the time.
