Saint Julien d'Eymet Town HallVersion Française
     

 

Saint Julien d’Eymet is located in the Dordogne, in the canton of Eymet. The main Bergerac - Mont de Marsan road crosses the town. It lies between the small valleys of the Lescouroux, whose source is in the commune, and the Roussillon, which forms the boundary with Razac d’Eymet.

The village hangs on the side of a hill. It is charming, with its Romanesque church and its old residences that have the patina of time.

     
 

Mixed farming, vineyards, grains and breeding are the town’s main economic resources. The town’s surface area is 581 hectares and there are 106* inhabitants. It is located in a green, calm, peaceful region, dotted here and there with shady groves.

In the Middle Ages, the region of Eymet was divided into Benefices belonging to the monasteries or abbeys destroyed by barbarians. Priories were created in their place. Charters were established between the priories and the peasants.
Saint Julien was a priory, called Sancti-Julian.
The dwellings grouped together around the priory to form a small community.
