Originated around a sacred water-spring, venerated by the Gaul, the city has experienced many events and destructions. The old Roman city has united with its neighbour Puy St Front which has developed around a monastery built on the edges of Isle, to become today’s well known Périgueux. You will visit the city’s church St Etienne, the cathedral St Front and its cloister, the district of Puy St Front, restored recently which sheltered many craftsmen and traders.
