Welcome to Périgueux - The city of nuts

Périgueux is a great city of south-western France, near Bordeaux, capital of Dordogne department, Aquitaine région. The name Périgueux comes from Petrocorii, a Latinization of the Celtic words meaning "the four tribes". This Roman city was once embellished with temples, baths, amphitheatres and a forum. At the end of the third century AD, the Roman city was surrounded by rampartsand in the 10th century, Le Puy-Saint-Front was built around an abbey next to the old city. During WWII, many Jews from the Alsace department and Alsatians were evacuated to Périgueux.
