    Musee d'interet national du Tabac

    Musee du Tabac

    The Tobacco Museum is located in the Maison Peyrarede, which was constructed in 1604. The exterior of the building is quite attractive, but what is inside is even more interesting.

    Spread over three floors, the museum traces the art, culture and history of tobacco. I thought the most interesting sections were the displays of snuff boxes and cigar holders. . .but the collection in its entirety held our attention right up to lunchtime ~ when we were asked to leave. We enjoyed it so much we returned after the break to finish.

    The displays are in French only, but there is enough here to warrant a stop in, even if you can't read the write-ups.

    Le Vieux Port

    Le Vieux Port, Bergerac

    The old port area of Bergerac is actually quite lovely. There are spots both on the quai and on the banks of the river to sit and gaze over the Dordogne.

    The port was the site of an 11th-century castle that protected the city ~ it was overtaken in 1615 and brought to ruins shortly thereafter.

    This is also the spot where "gabare," or traditional boat rides, leave from during the heavier tourist season.
