Lalinde Information

Lalinde is situated on the Dordogne river about 20km east of Bergerac.
Lalinde is an English bastide founded in 1261. Indeed it was the first of the English bastides to be built. It has suffered in the Hundred Years War and the Wars of Religion and not much remains of the original medieval town. However it is still an attractive town and a good base for exploring the Dordogne.
The remains of its medieval past can still be seen in the layout of the town and a selection of colombage buildings (half-timbered buildings). Parts of the original remparts can be seen on the side of the town by the river. La porte de Bergerac is one of the 6 original fortified gates by which you could enter the town. The base is still in the original stone and the upper half is in brick following a reconstruction after the gateway was burnt down by protestants in the Wars of Religion.
