"Its Capital: An Entry to Perigord" Périgueux by hquittner
Périgueux Travel Guide: 11 reviews and 38 photos
Our travel plan involved leaving the Dordogne and to head to Paris via Poitiers. We would not have time to visit all of the remaining four cities on our list: Angouleme, Limoges, Perigueux and Brantome. The latter two were on a line with Poitiers and so we planned brief stops at each to see the main church buildings. Perigueux was first. After we parked and were walking toward the Cathedral of St.-Front, we realized that this lively city contained much to see and was worth a leisurely visit (maybe more so than Sarlat)., but one cannot reverse time. The church headed our lists of 12C domed churches of Aquitaine, but it cannot be considered the prototype of the style, nor was it the first one built in the area, but see it we must.
- Pros:Worth a Longer Visit
- Cons:Little Information About It
- In a nutshell:Consider It As A Base
The different sides of the cloisters are from the 12 ,13 and 16C, hence two have Romanesque and two have Gothic arches... more travel advice
The interior of the church is spacious as intended but rather stark. Note the pendentives. The east dome is the choir... more travel advice
