The little city of Bergerac is beautiful and is a place where you will see swans swimming in the Dordogne River as well as a few half timbered houses from medieval times clustered around the old river port. During the 12th century it was a major crossing because of its bridge which at the time was the only one across the river. It is hardly surprising the town naturally evolved into a thriving trading port and commercial city.
During the Prussian War of 1870, Belfort was known as the last stronghold and managed to avoid the fate of nearby Alsace Lorraine who ended up surrendering to Germany.
Colonel Denfert-Rochereau who headed up military operations has a number of streets named after him as well as a metro station in Paris.

The Romans knew Beauvais as Caesaromagnus. The present name of this town can trace its origin back to the Belgic tribe of the Bellovaci for whom the town served as their capital. During the 9th century it transformed into a countship and in 1013 it was passed on to the bishops of Beauvais who from the 12th century became peers of France. During the king’s coronations, the Bishop of Beauvais was clothed in the royal mantle and along with the Bishop of Langres would present the king to the people by raising him from his throne.
