Built on an island about 300 meters in diameter surrounded by the Dronne, Brantôme has taken the pretty nickname of Venice of the Perigord. Although the comparison can go no further, one will nevertheless fall under the spell of this unusual little town, dominated by medieval and Renaissance style buildings, which houses a 7th and 8th century troglodytic abbey founded by Charlemagne. Its 11th century bell tower is known as the oldest bell tower in the Périgord. Also worth seeing: the Saint-Roch tower (12th century), which closed the abbey on the south side; the Reformed gate, which protected the access to the north; the Renaissance pavilion (16th century) and the bent bridge (16th century), which gives access to the monks' garden, created in the 16th century.
