Place Gambetta in Eymet
The place of Eymet in Dordogne is considered at the time medieval city of Périgord.
Founded in 1270 by Alphonse de Poitiers, this city was run by many sovereigns from the Hundred Years War until the reconquest of Aquitaine in 1453. The future King Henri IV made several stays there with his mother, Jeanne d'Albret .
Eymet, vestige of a medieval era
The Place Gambetta of Eymet is very representative of the architecture of the medieval period in the South West of France. The arcaded houses with their facades decorated with exposed beams, crossed wooden planks and at different heights on the exterior walls, the paving stones and the slightly flat roofs.
The wealth of Eymet is also a private castle listed as a historical heritage in the Dordogne department. The medieval city of Eymet has preserved its beautiful square and its medieval houses thanks to the competition from the Aquitaine region "Plan Bastide" which it won.
Eymet, a lively central square in a village in the Dordogne
At the corner of a perpendicular lane, you fall in love with Place d'Eymet, where cafes and breweries open their doors to regulars and people passing through. This central point of the square-shaped medieval city is embellished by half-timbered walls, rough stone and warm colors like wood and white or ocher stone.
The terraces of coffee shops and the soft light of a sunny summer day suggest conviviality, laughter and eternal conversations at dusk. The festivities would take precedence over the rest of the evening and free hearts would be brought to meet others through a traditional dance or an exchanged smile.
