There is also the internationally famous pre-historic art of the Lascaux Caves, the vast caverns of Grotte du Grand Roc and a huge amount of majestic chateaux, a small few of the best examples being Château de Beynac, the setting for Luc Besson’s Joan of Arc movie, Château de Commarque and Château de Beynac.
A LITTLE HISTORY:
The first mention of Sadillac appeared in the year 1079 when it was granted to the Abbey of Moissac by Duke William VIII of Aquitaine. The monks built a monastery there on the site of what is now Château de Sadillac, one which lasted over four hundred years until, at the end of the fifteenth century, it was converted into a priory.
During the French Wars of Religion between Roman Catholics and Protestant Huguenots (1562–1598), a Huguenot army from Bergerac captured Sadillac and destroyed almost everything in it including the Priory. It was rebuilt though at the beginning of the seventeenth century and served as a church before, in 1792, being sold and converted into a private residence. Though some of the original architectural features of the old church and priory remain most the chateau we see today dates from that time.
