About the Area
Saint-Julien-d’Eymet is a former commune in the Dordogne department in Nouvelle-Aquitaine in southwestern France. On 1 January 2019, it was merged into the new commune Saint-Julien-innocence-Eulalie.
Dordogne is a department in southwest France, set between the Loire Valley and Pyrenees mountains. it’s known for prehistoric cave paintings in the Vezere Valley, like those in Lascaux Cave. The town of Perigueux is home to the Cathedrale St-Front, with its 5 domes, and the Vesunna Museum, built around Roman ruins. The medieval town Sarlat-la-Caneda centers on the Rue de la Republique and the Cathedrale St-Sacerdos.
The heart of the “Dordogne” area is, naturally, the department of the Dordogne, centered on its capital Perigueux: the French tend to refer to this area not as “la Dordogne” but as “le Perigord”, and in France the area is most famous for its gourmet delights, notably pate de foie gras, walnuts and truffles. For tourists, the epicentre, indeed the epicurean centre, of this Dordogne is an area known as “le Perigord noir”, situated in the south east of the department. Centered on the town of Sarlat and the river Dordogne, this is the classic Dordogne, with its limestone cliffs, castles (such as Beynac or Castelnaud) and picturesque villages such as Domme and Laroque Gageac, and also its world-famous caves with their stalagmites and stalactites, and in several cases prehistoric paintings. The French National Museum of prehistory is at Les Eyzies, while the grotto at Lascaux boasts the world’s most famous prehistoric cave paintings. On account of the damage being caused by tourists, the real Lascaux cave, a UNESCO world heritage site, was closed to visitors back in 1963, but an exact replica has been carved out underground close to the original location, and the visitor experience is totally authentic.
A brand new authentic reproduction of the Lascaux caves, Lascaux 4, opened in December 2016, offering visitors a new and completely realistic visit indistinguishable in many ways from “the real thing”.
There are other prehistoric caves that can be visited at Font de Gaume and Cap Blanc, and even a prehistoric theme park, Prehistoparc. Perigord Noir is not a mountain region; it is hill country, mostly at an altitude of between 200 and 350, metres.
West of Perigord Noir lies Perigord Pourpre, the area round Bergerac; this is a low lying area, the limits of the coastal plain, a region most famous for its wines and vineyards. As for the north of the department, this is known as Perigord Vert, Green Perigord, a greener and more undulating region of small villages and farms, streams and rivers.
