Saint-Léonsur- Vézère

The 11th-century church here
is one of the oldest in the
Périgord. Its interior is
decorated with frescoes, from
the 12th to 17th centuries.
The beautifully restored
14th–17th century Château de
Chabans has fine stained glass,
tapestries and furniture, but is
no longer open to the public.
Nearby, at Le Moustier, is a
Buddhist centre, Laugeral.
Founded in 1977, this retreat
offers meditation and study,
and daily practice for followers.
