Monpazier is one of the finest examples of a bastide town and a commune in the Dordogne département of France. Built in 1284 by Edward I of England it follows the classic plan of a bastide, built round a square surrounded by arcades, with a large church near the centre. Despite being involved in numerous wars throughout the middle ages it remains largely untouched. It is one of the prettiest towns in the Dordogne region.
