Travellers and activities

Bergerac for History buffs

Bergerac is replete with history. You could also say that Bergerac has a fascination for Cyrano since there are two statues of the 17th century musketeer within the city. Interestingly, Cyrano de Bergerac never visited Bergerac. Neither did the author who used his name to create a fictional tale ever step foot in the city. You can find Cyrano at the Place Pélissiére and on the beautiful Rue de la Mirpe. Other historical sites that are a must-see include the world-famous Bastides (Puyguilhem), Château de Monbazillac and the Moulin de la Rouzique (paper mill).

Bergerac for Food and Wine connoisseurs

Bergerac is a renowned wine region for its highly prized Périgord black truffles. Wine lovers can't miss a visit to Le Cloître des Récollets where all the local producers meet. This 17th century monks cellar is also architecturally wonderful and a great place to learn about viticulture. Be sure to also venture over to Vinothéque to learn about the prehistory of this region as well as their signature "sensorial table". Then, try the world-famous Périgord black truffle available at the truffle market in Sainte-Alvère.

Bergerac for Nature lovers

Outdoor lovers are in for a treat! One of the best things to do in Bergerac is to rent a canoe for a half day and explore the Dordogne River. The canoe trips range from easy with flat green banks and plenty of places to stop and have a picnic, to a little more challenging runs through limestone ravines, mediaeval castles and dark woodlands. There are also loads of hiking trails both near the river and deeper into the countryside. Find out more at the tourist office. Water lovers should beeline over to the picturesque Lac de Pombonne.

Bergerac is home to one of the last surviving tobacco farms in Europe.
