LALINDE


Lalinde is a commune 20 km east of Bergerac and lies on the Dordogne River.
The town was a bastide occupied by the English during the Hundred Years War, but these days very little of the original walls that surrounded the town remain.  I imagine that as the need for fortified protection diminished, the townsfolk dismantled the walls and "recycled" the stone to erect their homes and other buildings.
