A village with roots in antiquity, today it is a quaint village with timbered houses circling the church and Bishop's Palace (17th century). The village is circular in plan with most buildings of medieval half-timbered style (most are original) and still retains much of its 13th-century walls. In 1438 it was pillaged by Rodrigo de Villandrando.

The village is set in the midst of wine country, and is part of the Bergerac wine-growing region.

Throughout the year the village hosts a number of festivals and events and has a thriving market on Sunday mornings, where many gastronomic products are available as well as a selection of local wines, meats, fruit and vegetables brought directly to the market by their producers.
