Founded at the end of the 11th century by bishop of Périgueux Raynaud de Thiviers, this is one of the oldest priory in the area! This 11th century church strikes by his unusual look: its bell-tower with openings, a covered market sticks to the chevet... During French Revolution, we had only three canons left. The priory was sold, its archives burnt, its library destroyed.
