Le poete Paul Eluard, pilier du surréalisme, s'’installa à Beynac-et-Cazenac, dans une maison toute proche du château. La ruelle porte désormais son nom. C’est dans la dernière partie de sa vie qu’il vécut dans ce village, une période assez sombre de son existence. Il y écrivit son oeuvre ultime Poésie ininterrompue (1946) où son « savoir vieillir, savoir passer le temps » s’accorde en notes majeures à son quotidien beynacois.

Dans le Barry et la rue de la Balme, artère principale, on doit imaginer de part et d’autres les étales des marchands, tisserands et les vanniers.  Certaines demeures témoignent  encore de leurs anciennes fonctions d’échoppes.
.
Dans les environs du village, on comptait 3 moulins à eau dont celui du château le Moulin Sainte Marie. Le vin de Domme et celui des coteaux de Garnazet prés de Beynac étaient très réputés. Au début du 20° siècle on comptait 4 familles de pêcheurs, 3 tavernes et 4 fontaines publiques…

Beynac-et-Cazenac. Бенак-э-Казнак - эта небольшая деревенька на юго-западной стороне Франции считается одной из самых красивых: драматический пейзаж с обрывистыми скалами, наверху которых возвышается замок. Бенак — такой красивый город, что многие режиссеры выбрали его в качестве съемочной площадки для своих фильмов. В Бенаке снимался и известнейший фильм «Шоколад», завоевавший немало наград на кинофестивалях. Основным местом съёмок фильма стал бургундский городок Флавиньи-сюр-Озрен, а сцены у реки были сняты в Бенаке на улице rue De L’ancienne Poste (река Дордонь). #beynacetcazenac #бенакэказнак#франция#путешествие#BonjourlaFrance #france #frances #france2018 #belle_france #hello_france #super_france #france_vacations #visitFrance #merveilledefrance #francephotolovers #francetravel #travel#фильмшоколад #francevoyage#france_focus_on #topeuropephoto #france_vacations #europe_vacations #voyaged #living_europe #bestcitybreaks #citybestpics#дордонь#dordogne

Les Barrys ou quartiers de Beynac-et-Cazenac : Dans le Barry du port,  l’activité était grande autour des gabares, on déchargeait les marchandises venant du haut pays ou du bergeracois, les pêcheurs nombreux vendaient leurs prises et notamment les saumons si réputés jusqu’au 19 ° siècle. .

« Sem de Bainac e n’avem pas paur ! » « Nous sommes de Beynac et nous n’avons pas peur » a toujours été depuis plusieurs siècles la devise de ses habitants. « Beinacum » en 1147 « Beynachas » en 1187 « Bainac ou Benaco » au moyen âge, ce nom vient d’un personnage de l’époque des invasions au V et VI° siècles. Beynac se découpait en Barrys  ou quartiers.

"Un village, un castel, un fleuve", voici comment se qualifie le village de Beynac-et-Cazenac, en Périgord. En arpentant ses ruelles pentues, on se replonge dans les siecles passés. Il faut aller chercher dans le silence de ses pierres les réponses aux questions que l’on se pose quant à nos racines et découvrir le temps ou les paysans, tisserands et vanniers, pêcheurs et gabarrrers, animaient la vie des campagnes et des bords du fleuve Dordogne.

A partir d'aujourd'hui, je vous emmène visiter un autre joyau du Périgord : Beynac-et-Cazenac. Ce petit village, tout en pente, est situé à 10km de Sarlat, sur le bord de la dordogne.  Il est classé parmi les plus beaux villages de France. Il est dominé par un imposant chateau médiéval (XIIe siècle) qui est classé monument historique.  Ce village est sublime. Découvrons-le en cheminant dans les petites ruelles qui mènent au chateau.
. ❓ Avez-vous déjà visité Beynac-et-Cazenac?

Bon week-end à tous!

I really like this floor.  It’s in the residence area of Beynac Castle.  The style is called Pisé and what makes this floor unique is that the stones are not laid horizontally but are laid into the floor vertically.  This is done because the stone will be stronger and in doing so the floor will last longer.  This style is a very rare find.

This shows how the stone floor of this century’s old church has worn down.  I’m sure this  little church has some amazing stories that have come from within.

The Sunday market in St Cyprien is a view to behold.  This market is full of locally grown food.  Whether you buy fresh grown fruits and vegetables, cheese made from generations of family perfected traditions, walnut oil from local trees or a whole chicken slowly roasted with potatoes that are covered in herbs and drippings.  There are tons of choices to take home or for a a Sunday afternoon picnic. There is something for everyone.

This was an Occitan festival called a félibrée. Every summer for 99 years this festival has been held in the Dordogne. This year the village of St Cyprien was chosen to host. The people of St Cyprien and the surrounding area came together to create 400,000 handmade flowers from paper and plastic that where then used to decorate 7kms of the village’s streets.  The festival included music, singing, traditional dancing, delicious food, and a parade.  The festival runs 4 days usually sometime between the middle of June and the first week of July.

The earliest written record of Beynac Castel goes back to 1115.  The record states that Maynard de Beynac made a gift to the sisters at Fontevrault Abby.  It’s an impressive fortress along with the village’s church to its side.

Here is a throw back to the past. It was 2007 in this photo when the Tour de France came through Beynac. There was a parade for several hours. Sponsors from all around the globe were there to advertise and throw items to the crowds of people lining the streets.  When the cyclists came through the village they were gone in a flash.

This archway is part of of the ancient wall that once surrounded the village of Beynac.  It’s located at the top of the village near the castle. I really like the texture and deep groves in the stone.

Mont Joie was build over 400 years ago by one of the barons of Beynac Castle.  He built it for the son of his mistress.  Inside Mont Joie on the massive fireplace you can see remnants of a royal crest.  The crest was damaged most likely during the French Revolution.

Because of the exterior shape of this house it reminds me of the children’s poem, “there was an old woman who lived in a shoe”. It’s a storybook cottage in Beynac and it’s over 500 years old.
