Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A lovely remains of a church, that has been transformed into an exhibition hall. Well worth a visit, if your in the area.

Small correction of previous opinions which confuse the old Saint Martin church with the Sainte Marie Abbey Church. If the 2 buildings are classified MH, it is the Sainte Marie abbey and the monastic buildings which form the Benedictine abbey of Souillac.
The old Saint-Martinn church now renamed Saint Martin Belfry, Place Saint Martin was the old parish church until the revolution. The municipality at the time was able to buy the property which was put to very diverse uses in the 19th and 20th centuries. The nave was cut in two in the direction of height with the installation of a floor... It was in turn, municipal council hall, wedding hall, fire station, cinema then small exhibition rooms and concerts. At the beginning of the 1970s, the town hall moved to the old school founded by Mlle Salive. The cinema moved to Avenue du Général de Gaulle, the 1st floor was removed and the church cut into 2 distinct parts. On the side of the old choir the tourist office is located there (owned today by the CAUVALDOR community of communes). The old nave, separated from the Tourist Office premises by two huge doors reminiscent of those of the Sarlat market, was completely redesigned in 2021 and transformed into an exhibition room with high museum standards. Since 2022, from April to September, it has hosted high-quality exhibitions: “Joséphine Baker, an extraordinary destiny” in 2022, Valery Koshlyakov in 2023, “Sauvage” in 2024 with the exhibition of a cast of the lioness of Souillac discovered at the end of the 90s during the construction of the A20 motorway and loaned by the Toulouse museum.
Since 2017, a contemporary art festival which is held throughout the territory of Cauvaldor has offered at the Beffroi Saint Martin (the new name of the building) a contemporary art exhibition with works loaned by several FRAC (Abattoirs de Toulouse, Meca de Bordeaux) and by private collectors. This exhibition is accompanied by numerous mediation sessions with schools in the region but also with the general public.
Since 2023, the Beffroi Saint Martin has also hosted an award-winning truffle market.
The discovery of the old nave is only possible during these events.
They are all free.
