The church of Saint-Pierre-ès-Liens in Audrix, in a very pure Romanesque style, dates from the 12th century, reworked in the 14th century. In addition to its excellent acoustics, it has the unusual characteristic of having two bell towers.
This very pretty village of less than 300 inhabitants is nestled on a hillside between two valleys, hence its geographical importance for centuries - dating back at least to Gallo-Roman times. Its market hall hosts a night market every Saturday in summer, and its natural amphitheatre where concerts are held overlooks the Dordogne valley.
