    • 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

    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

    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.

    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...
