The History of Bergerac can be see everywhere from its medieval centre to the more modern new town dating from the 19th century. Everywhere you turn you will see history and culture in this picturesque town and you will not fail to notice the statues of Cyrano de Bergerac which are possibly the most photographed part of the town and one statue at the Place Pelissiere can have queues near it as people wait to have their photograph taken with it, however historically there is little to no connection between the famous person and this charming town.
Whilst you are near the Place Pelissiere a must is visiting the Rue Saint James with its 14th century buildings and No 26 has become quite famous with the bizarre sculptures resting in the walls.
Away from the older part of the town you will find the National Tobacco museum documenting the history of Tobacco and its uses over 3000 years. Another museum to visit is the National Wine and River Navigation museum, this museum shows how Bergerac made its wealth through trade.
Near to Bergerac is the Recollets convent which hosts wine tasting events and an exhibition of the 13 wine Bergerac has given its name to. During the summer months, the convent is used to host concerts.
Bergerac offers an abundance of heritage in the relaxed French style and walking around the town you will say many different eras of architecture as well as several places to stop and relax with a coffee. All of this can be yours by clicking one of the options above.
