érigueux is the capital and largest city of the Dordogne region and has a history that predates most other European cities. The name Perigueux comes from Petrocorii, a Latinization of Celtic words referring to "the four tribes" that held the area before the Roman conquest. Perigueux was their capital city.
There’s been a regular morning market in Perigueux since Roman times. Every Wednesday and Saturday, traffic is banned from the city center, and its squares are filled with farmers and artisans.
Perigueux maintains its small town feel and has events involving food throughout the summer. Walking through the Roman ruins, Medieval and Renaissance quarters makes for a great day trip.
