Saint Amand de Coly Abbey
Just 8 kilometres from the Lascaux cave, in a small valley surrounded by woods, the village of Saint-Amand-de-Coly - one of the most beautiful villages in France - is home to a spectacular abbey church, founded over 1,000 years ago by Saint Amand.
This abbey church, built of Sarlat stone and typical Périgord Noir slate roofs, is considered to be the most beautiful fortified church in the region and is an invitation to contemplate. It's hard not to fall under the spell of the 30-metre-high bell tower-porch of Saint-Amand-de-Coly abbey, with its huge pointed arch framing the church's entrance door.
You can learn all about the history of this imposing structure on the interpretation trail.
