Discover a bastide in the heart of Entre-deux-Mers. Perched on the top of a hill overlooking the valley of the Gamage, a tributary of the Dordogne, the town of Blasimon is renowned for its Benedictine abbey with its marvelous portal, a jewel of Romanesque sculpture. It is also famous for its village, a bastide built in the Middle Ages. The village was established at the crossroads of several rivers: the Gamage, the Treynem, the Dondaine and the Sainte-Catherine. Six water mills, which remain in the landscape, testify to an important rural activity. The Departmental Domain of Blasimon, vast of 50 hectares, offers a hilly and wooded environment.
