Lanouaille is a commune in the Dordogne department in Aquitaine in southwestern France. The departmental road D704 (Sarlat-Limoges) passes through the town.

History[edit]

Lanouaille (la nouvelle - new) is a relatively new commune created from parts of the areas of Savignac-Lédrier and Dussac. It owes its development to its location on the road from Sarlat to Limoges via Saint Yrieix and Montignac (D704), and its status as seat of the canton (before 1801 Dussac was the seat of the canton).
