Visit of Saint Martial Viveyrols - Part I

My favourite place on earth is situated in Périgord. In Green Périgord, indeed. North West of Périgord to be more precise. I guess that this tiny village (less than 300 unhabitants) has a very long history. Proof of antiquity/roman period had been discovered and its church was built whilst the Year 1000, in the Middle Ages. The Church was very famous and quite wealthy in the 11e c. & 12e c. It still is, in the middle of the village, a forteress church. One of the few in the area (along with Siorac de Ribérac & Grand Brassac).
