Monpazier

Monpazier is one of the finest examples of a bastide town and a commune in the Dordogne département of France. Built in 1284 by Edward I of England it follows the classic plan of a bastide, built round a square surrounded by arcades, with a large church near the centre. Despite being involved in numerous wars throughout the middle ages it remains largely untouched. It is one of the prettiest towns in the Dordogne region. (Wikivoyage)
