Monpazier

Monpazier is a commune in the Dordogne department in Nouvelle-Aquitaine in southwest France. The village is a member of the Les Plus Beaux Villages de France ("The most beautiful villages of France") association.PopulationIts inhabitants are called Monpaziérois.SightsMonpazier is a 13th-century bastide town begun in 1285, founded and built by King Edward I of England, who was also Duke of Gascony. It was home to Eleanor of Aquitaine and Richard II of England for a time. Nearby is the Château du Biron and the Dordogne River.The parish church of Monpazier is St. Dominique, built from the 13th through the 16th centuries. The church was built in a rectangular parcel and adjoins with a corner of the marketplace. The apse was added in the fifteenth century and the choir was believed to have been completed in 1506.EventsDuring the summer months, Monpazier hosts a number of events of interest to tourists, including a cycle race around the bastide (usually at the start of August), a Medieval day ('fete medieval'), a Kermesse and several specialist markets.PersonalityJulien Guiomar (1928-2010), actor, lived his last years in Monpazier.
