Périgueux, capital city of the Dordogne department, with her past dating back to Roman times. Staying at a campsite in Perigueux, is a genuine dive into history.
To start your journey back properly, go to the Vesunna Gallo-Roman Museum: it keeps many traces of the Romans presence. The site created a link with our modern period since it was conceived by famous architect Jean Nouvel, the most famous French architect of our times, designer of some of the boldest buildings in the world. His main goal was to plunge visitors in the past while at the same time highlighting the precious ruins held by the museum.
Keep on walking on memory lane thanks to your vacation at a campsite in Perigueux with the Middle Ages now. This period's remains are still very much present in the city thanks to the numerous medieval houses. Its most beautiful incarnation though, comes with Saint-Front Cathedral. This major stage on the way to Santiago de Compostela was built on a hill. Its Byzantine influences will probably stir your curiosity. Do not get fooled by its 5 domes though: you're still vacationing at a campsite of Perigueux, not Constantinople!
Time to remind the Renaissance period now. It is still visible in the city's elegant mansions. The nineteenth century finally traced its wide avenues in the Belle Epoque style. That's it, you completed your travel back in time. You can now return to your campsite in Périgueux!
