The gardens of the imagination
from Terrasson

In the heart of the Barade forest, in the heart of Périgord Noir, stand the ruins of the Herm castle built in 1512. The memory of the tragic events which had marked the history of the castle prompted Eugène Le Roy to choose it as the setting for his famous novel "Jacquou le Croquant".

Discovered in 1995, the TOURTOIRAC CAVE amazed its inventor, then his speleologist friends. Over time, water and nature have dug out the cavity and decorated and designed it into an immense fresco. Following the underground river, you will be immersed in a spectacle of shadows and lights between columns and draperies, eccentric and fistulous.

This unforgettable journey to TOURTOIRAC will lead you to the discovery of this village marked first by prehistory, then the history of a thousand-year-old abbey.
