Photographer's Note

Rochechouart (Rechoard in Occitan, earlier La Ròcha Choard) is a commune in the Haute-Vienne department in the Limousin region in west-central France. It is a sub-prefecture of the department.

The name of the town comes from Latin roca cavardi, which roughly translates as the rock of Cavardus, the lord who had the fortified place built at the beginning of the 11th century. More often than not, natives pronounce it [ʁoˈʃwaʁ], not *[ʁɔʃəˈʃwaʁ] as is its pronunciation in Standard French.
