We are 36kms from the regions administrative centre at Perigueux, a Romano-Gallic town on the old pilgrims trail to Santiago de Compestela in Spain. In the Old Town many of the streets are paved with cobbles and you can see Brass Scallop Shells inset into them denoting the route taken by the pilgrims.
