Situated south of the département of the Dordogne, Bergerac is listed as a City of Art and History. Second in size, split from East to West by the River Dordogne, it is of course to be well reminded of from its exceptional vineyards : Montbazillac, Bergerac, Pécharmant, Rosette and Saussignac.
Bergerac finds its origin in a castle built at the end of the XIth Century on the edge of the River Dordogne which attracts a population until then scattered in the plain.
During the XIIIth Century, the development of viticulture and the growth of commerce lead to the building of a bridge over the river.
A network of airports links the south of the Dordogne to the main European capitals.
Remains an old historical city which lanes the tourists like to ramble through, down to the quay of the port, dominated by the famous statue of Cyrano de Bergerac.
