The Essential

The ancient city with its Gallo-Roman villa crowned by a glass roof by Jean Nouvel stands on one side of the town; the medieval and Renaissance district is on the other, encompassing Cathédrale St-Front, the Byzantine feel of which is down to Paul Abadie. This neighbourhood is the hub of the action. Shops and cafés share doorsteps on narrow pedestrian streets that are interrupted by squares with views of the astonishing cathedral. Active yet peaceful, Périgueux is a most engaging city.
