Its geographical situation places Saint-
Cyprien at the crossroads for tourism in the
Black Perigord and makes it one of the jewels of
the superb Valley of the Dordogne including
within a radius of a few miles Sarlat, Les
Milandes, Beynac, the cave of Proumeyssac,
les Eyzies and the Vezere Valley.
Set into the side of a verdant hill overlooking
the Valley of the Dordogme, the picturesque
village of Saint-Cyprien is full of history as wit-
ness the narrow, winding alleyways that lead to
the 12th C. bell-tower-keep attached to the
abbey-church with its classified organ chests
and, beyond, to the caves of Roquefourniere, then to the chateau de Fages.
Several signposted trekking paths offer a variety of circuits and an ideal way of discovering the rich local
heritage in the form of Romanesque chapels, chateaux, cluzeaux (or cave holes) hollowed out into the cliffs,
together with cool and shady valleys and woods.
The new road along the valley enables the town to enjoy a new economic prosperity. Numerous associations of
quality including sporting and cultural ones together with all the leisure facilities near to the finest river in France
will entice you to stay here.
