Climb to the City of Domme

It was around 1281 that King Philippe III said "the bold" decides to create a country house on "the bar", this cliff which dominates the Dordogne river from more than 150 meters.

Amazing Experience

The country house was built according to "standards" that is to say a regular plan, streets intersecting at right angles, square squares, a hall etc. ... Through restorations, this country house has survived and still testifies to nowadays, from the richness of its past.

The most impressive vestiges of this military aspect make the bastide of Domme a remarkable site. Indeed, the ramparts which surround the village and the various doors which allowed access to it, are still largely present in an extraordinary state of conservation. The most impressive is undoubtedly the Porte des Tours, which demonstrates how the king wanted to confuse any attackers by imposing aesthetic constraints on the builders of the fortifications.
