Saint Cyprien

A medieval village in the heart of Périgord Noir

Welcome to Saint Cyprien

Saint Cyprien is a medieval hilltop town on the banks of the Dordogne, a small commune of 1,700 inhabitants.

Saint Cyprien is a small village of 1,600 inhabitants in the heart of the Périgord's golden triangle: Sarlat, les Eyzies, Bergerac

La traverse, the small street that runs the length of the village, hosts a fabulous market every Sunday, where you'll also find small shops and restaurants.
For the visit, you'll have to stray a little towards the rising parts, wandering through small streets where the stone dwellings have been perfectly preserved and give the village an incredible charm.

Then climb up to the abbey. Its name comes from a hermit called Saint Cyprien, who settled in a cave overlooking the Dordogne valley in the 7th century( the Fages caves, which overlook the village and are freely accessible on foot from the village). Little by little, a religious community grew up around him.

In 2018 Saint Cyprien hosted the 99th Félibrée: The Félibrée (in Occitan: Felibrejada) is a popular Occitan festival organized each year in a town or village in the Périgord region.
