Turenne

Turenne bears the name of a powerful viscountcy that ruled over Limousin, Périgord and Quercy for ten centuries and it has kept many traces of its past : César and le Trésor towers, remains of the castle overlooking the village, old town houses dating from the 15C to 17C adorned with turrets or bartizans and more modest dwellings tiled with "lauze" stone slabs or slate.
