Ribérac (Occitan: Rabairac) is a commune in the Dordogne department in Nouvelle-Aquitaine in southwestern France. The commune is situated by the Dronne River.

History[edit]

In 1793, the commune of Faye joined with Ribérac. In 1851, a part of the commune was dismembered for the creation of the new commune of Saint-Martin-de-Ribérac. Ribérac was the old sub-prefecture that was removed in a decree of 10 September 1926.
