Ribérac is a commune in the Dordogne department in Aquitaine in south-western France.

There are two main attractions in the surrounding area of Riberac - the large forest (the 'Foret de la Double') and numerous Romanesque churches in the surrounding villages. Churches to visit include the church at St Privat des Pres: this is one of the most attractive churches in the Perigord. It is a fortified church and was an integral part of the defences in the region.
