King Philippe III, known as "le hardi", decided in 1281 to create a bastide on the cliff which dominated the Dordogne River by more than 150 metres. The bastide was built according to a regular plan, with streets intersecting at right angles, square squares and a market hall. Numerous restorations have enabled this bastide to survive and still bear witness to its rich past. The ramparts that surround the village and the various gates that allowed access are still standing in an extraordinary state of preservation. The most impressive is the Porte des Tours, both an aesthetic and defensive work.
