#15 of 39 in Historic Sites in Dordogne
Religious Site Landmark
Built in the 12th century and renovated in the 15th, Cloitre de Cadouin represents a Gothic architectural gem. For centuries, monks here devoted their lives to prayer and hosted the shroud of Cadouin, long believed to have been the cloth placed on Jesus' face after his crucifixion. In the past, pilgrims visited and venerated this cloth, believed to possess healing properties. Today, you can tour the cloister and visit a reproduction of the shroud.

  • Entry fee is ridiculously high, but you soon discover this place has a long history of fleecing tourists.
  • Nice for what it is. You must, however, pay €7,-per person for a ride around the courtyard. That is also really literally everything. Pretty courtyard garden, beautiful walls, but 7 euro for 10 minutes to a courtyard garden is going too far.

  • Superb restoration of the cloister. The sculptures are beautiful. The ticket price is a bit high though!

  • Beautiful cloister, fine restoration. A bit expensive ticket

  • It was closed in March, possibly for being low season. Despite this the village has much charm and the Church and Abbey look much from the outside. If you come from Beaumont or surrounding it costs nothing to pass and stop.
