Belvès, medieval town with seven belltowers, is near the Bessède forest. Its name probably comes from a celtic tribe, the Bellovaques, that settled here around 250 B.C. Through small streets with poetic names as la Rue du Bout du Monde ("End Of The World Street") or la Rue de l’Oiseau qui Chante ("The Bird That Sings Street"), the Castrum fortified in the 11th century, with its main gate, its belfry and its ramparts. The Covered Market, 500 years old, has kept on one of its 23 pillars, the chain of the pillory where thieves and other bad citizens were attached. In the streets with gothic and Renaissance style houses are the remains of the Dominican Convent and its octogonal belltower, the hôtel Bontemps (XII-XVIth), the Hôpital (XVIIth), the castle (XIVth) or the Tour de l’Auditeur (XIth).
Under the market place, the Cave dwellings show us how daily life was in the Middle Ages inside the ancient moat.
