      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
