Capital of Périgord pourpre Dordogne

City of Bergerac

Bergerac (Brageirac in occitant) has a heritage dear to the hearts of its inhabitants, an incomparable quality of life and a strong reputation for savoir vivre.
Numerous events are organized throughout the year.

The Dordogne River and Cyrano de Bergerac await you!


Located in the Périgord pourpre region, Bergerac, a historic town, invites you on an exciting and picturesque tour. Take time to stroll through the narrow streets lined with half-timbered houses and the many mansions from another era.
The 19th-century Notre Dame church, built to Viollet le Duc's original plans, is listed as a historic monument in the town center.
The city is home to the tobacco museum, the city's wine and inland waterway museum and the Costi Museum sculptor of the last century.
Crossing the Dordogne River, you can contemplate the comings and goings of the gabares, traditional flat-bottomed boats once used to transport goods.

The town has been awarded the City of art and history by the Ministry of Culture since 1985
It is one of the 3 sub-prefectures of the Dordogne.

Cyrano emissary of Bergerac

Although the statue of Cyrano, the town's emblem, stands in Place Pélissière, the character seems never to have come to Bergerac, yet he has become the most famous Bergeracois.

The character from whom Edmond Rostand drew inspiration for his famous play, Savinien de Cyrano de Bergerac, actually hails from the Paris region, Bergerac being the name of a family home in the Chevreuse valley in the Yvelines.

It was Edmond Rostand who turned him into a Gascon, associating the name Cyrano with the town of Bergerac in the Dordogne. It has to be said that this adoptive emissary made a major contribution to the town's renown.


Bergeraca "reflection of the Dordogne", takes full advantage of the charm of its river, considered to be one of the cleanest and most beautiful in Europe.

For many years, the town has been taking steps to create and manage its urban landscape. As a result, after being awarded 4 flowers, it is now a member of the highly prized club of towns that have won the Grand Prix National du Fleurissement.


The South-West is certainly one of France's most diverse culinary regions. One of them, Périgord cuisineIts flavours are the result of skilful blending.
