    • The Benedictine abbey of Brantôme being abandoned since the French Revolution, it is by following the foot of the cliff and its many caves, that we can learn about the 1000 years of history which have shaped architecture : 33 panels, French/English, detail the events that influenced the future of the abbey and the city (cave known as the "Last Judgment", the humble and miraculous fountain of St Sicaire, dovecotes, the remains of a troglodyte mill…).

      The visit ends with the Fernand Desmoulin Museum (painter-engraver of the late 19th century). Several aspects of his work are staged in the two rooms that compose it (thrills guaranteed!).

      The troglodyte site is open to visitors all year round, with the exception of January
      • February, March, October, November, December : from 10am to 12pm and from 2pm to 5pm - closed on Tuesday
      • April, May : from 10am to 1pm and from 2pm to 6pm
      • June, September : from 10am to 6pm

    Amazing Abbey with grottos behind it and a small visitor shop. Steeped in history and inspiring in how it evolved over the centuries.

    Impressive Abbaye de Brantome is the place where you pay to access the caves that are at the back of the building. There are signs inside explains the history of the caves.

  • "interesting"

    5 / 5 Reviews posted by Yanick B on 05/09/2019

    Very interesting ! The abbaye is medieval, but was built near ancient grottes. Very unique. The city is really nice too, and situated on an island ! Great bridge

    Firstly my wife has mobility issues and uses a rollator (pushed device with seat) to get around. The advice we were given was excellent, even though I speak French as well as the attendant speaks...
