Thanks to the varied history of Dordogne, you will find reminders of the pre-historic times, Romans and of course the English throughout the region, from cave painting to castles and ruins to churches. Much of this history is documented in a number of museums.
But it is not just man-made artefacts that are worth seeking out. Dordogne is blessed with fabulous scenery, from the rows of vineyards in the Bergerac and Saint-Emilion areas to the rolling hills of the Vezere valley in the east. There are also a wealth of natural caves that are filled with wonders that look as though they come from another world. Rivers that run deep underground and stalactites and stalagmites that form shapes you couldn't imagine in your wildest dreams..
