Awesome church with a Abbey attached, great to just have a look around, and don't forget to take the panorama trek, up the hill, to look down on the Abbey and Church from above.

If you are in the area and enjoy looking at a cloister, go for a visit. If you've seen a number of them before, this one is not going to provide you with anything you have not already seen. No English on audio guide.

What a truly beautiful place - Cadouin. What a pity the famous restaurant for garlic soup was closed until 28th - really fancied the soup. We went across the road to a lovely restaurant and had gorgeous omelettes and ice cream. No soup! 😃

There is a charge for entry to the cloister (though not to the church), but if that income helps to fund the sympathetic restoration of the stonework it's well worth it. Fascinating to study the detail in the carvings (aided by the helpful guide notes)...More
