Share the historical Bastides
of the Périgord as a family
Are you familiar with the history of these so-called “new towns” of medieval times?
If not, enthusiastic guides are available to recount to you the period of peace and prosperity from 1000 and 1400, followed by a major wave of construction during the Crusades against Catharism and the Hundred Years’ War.
This was the golden age for the “Bastida”, which is simply Occitan for “construction”.
