Le Dorat was built around the 11th Century Collégiale, a stage on the pilgrimage route to Compostella. The magnificent Collégiale provides a background for markets and fêtes held in the narrow streets of the old town.
Le Dorat has several restaurants offering a range from pizzas to café light lunches to fine dining traditional French fare.
There's a small weekly market, a larger market on the 13th of each month, and every two weeks throughout the summer a 'Producers' Market' is staged in the square - a very popular and sociable communal barbeque not to be missed.
