Beynac et Cazenac, in spite of its name, is one village, and that village is named as one of "les plus beaux villages de France".
The village is dominated by its huge castle, once besieged by Richard the Lionheart, then partly dismantled by Simon de Montfort. It is now put to more peaceful uses, and the castle chapel with its roof of lauzes has become the village church.
From the castle there is a superb view of the Dordogne river and the many other castles in the river valley.
