    • The bell tower of the abbey church of Brantôme dates from the 11th century. It is one of the oldest bell towers in France. It has the particularity of being an independent building, built on a 12-metre high rocky overhang against which the church is built.

      Its architecture is characteristic of the Romanesque style that flourishes in the Limousin region and is characterized by the use of cables crowning the bays and by an overlay of four recessed floors. Its point is topped by a pyramid of quadrangular stone.

      Visits commented from April to October.

    Part of it closed can only do it with a guide which they didn't tell us when we bought the tickets. Great history but they could do with a guide in each room so that you could ask questions. I enjoyed the visit but explanations were not detailed enough. So much history. Other than staff who sold tickets no one else at all to help or answer questions. Shop was good.

    What a beautiful building in the main streets of Brantome, overlooking the river. Tours available however I liked walking around without one, your can really feel the atmosphere from times past and imagine the monks overlooking the troubles from up high. A truly tranquil setting
