Brantôme Abbey caves

Brantôme Abbey caves

Tourism

Following in the footsteps of hermits who had converted the Fontaine du Roche to Christianity, monks occupied the Brantôme Abbey caves in the cliff, setting them up for use as store rooms or refuges when the abbey's buildings were destroyed.

Visit the heating room, washhouse, dovecot, the mysterious Cave of the Last Judgement and its low reliefs, as well as the Miraculous Fountain of the Rock known by many for its miraculous properties.

Take the self-guided tour through Brantôme Abbey caves and read information boards along the route describing the history and its connections with Abbey of Brantôme.

Complete your tour of the caves by visiting its museum.
