#1 of 17 in Things to do in Perigueux
The Roman Catholic Cathedrale St-Front started out as a humble church and monastery named for St. Front, who was a hermit living and preaching there. Erected around the fourth century, it was destroyed and rebuilt several times over the years, due to fires, invasions, and other tragedies. The cathedral underwent an extensive 19th-century renovation, melding the styles of different eras and giving the structure its current appearance.

  • Take the time to watch and visit this wonder. Its building will surprise you, the atmosphere and decoration inside are splendid. A visit with family, love or with children. Long live the Dordogne.
