Bastide Domme
 
Domme is a bastide town in the Dordogne, also known as Doma in Occitan.  It was raided by Simon de Montfort during his ravages along the Dordogne.

 
The present town was founded in 1281 by Philip the Bold and therefore post dates the Crusade.  It has fine views.
 
Knights Templar imprisoned with the gate towers left graffiti after their arrests in 1307 which may still be seen.
 
The WWII war memorial commemorates the dead in combat (presumably of the Resistance), those deported and other civilians shot by the Nazis.
