The church of Tayac

For hundreds of years the monks started working the land in this lush Vezere valley and bit by bit houses were built against the rock.
The water from the “Tayac Source” was taken to other surrounding Monasteries for its healing powers. Tayac was thriving.
Two centuries later, things took a turn, wars were breaking out, armies were constantly attacking areas and strongholds. Religion lost its power, and very slowly the life in and around Tayac became what it is today. The church of St. Martin still stands proud, and is without doubt one of the nicest Fortified Church in the Perigord. The “Tayac Source” is still there, although no longer in use.
