The fortified town of Monpazier, founded by Edward I of England, has a beautiful square, adorned with arches, on which a fine wooden market hall flaunts itself. The houses add a charming touch to the square with their facades covered by climbing roses. At the heart of the Bastide Land, founded in 1284 by Edward I, King of England, the manor of Monpazier, ranked among the most beautiful villages in France, has preserved its appearance and its original dimensions almost intact. Eight centuries after its foundation, it presents itself to visitors as an authentic jewel of medieval architecture.
