Bergerac tourist informationwhere to go - what to see - what to do
Despite widespread devastation during the Wars of Religion when most of its Protestant inhabitants fled abroad, Bergerac is still an attractive market town. Once an important port for the wine trade it still serves as a hub for maize, vine and tobacco production. The old quarter and the old harbour are particularly delightful boasting late-medieval houses and drinking fountains on street corners.
The town comes alive on market days (Wednesday & Saturday) when you'll see an array of excellent local produce on display. Try to get hold of some of the white, velvety Montbazillac wine which is often drunk on special occasions. For the connoisseurs among you head to the slopes north of the river where you'll find small wine growers producing some excellent red Bergeracs.
Bergerac is a useful stopover for the prehistoric sites & the Vezere Valley (see also Perigueux and Sarlat for attractions).
