Built in the 12th century and renovated in the 15th, Cloitre de Cadouin represents a Gothic architectural gem. For centuries, monks here devoted their lives to prayer and hosted the shroud of Cadouin, long believed to have been the cloth placed on Jesus' face after his crucifixion. In the past, pilgrims visited and venerated this cloth, believed to possess healing properties. Today, you can tour the cloister and visit a reproduction of the shroud.

  • Interesting place with an open entry to the church but couldn’t get to see much else as it was closed up. Around here some interesting farmer shops where I was able to buy some delicacies
  • What a small treasure in the perigord. Nice, very detailed statues. An informative audiotour.
