Lalinde (Occitan: La Linda) is a commune in the Dordogne department in Nouvelle-Aquitaine in southwestern France. It lies on the Dordogne River and was enclosed within fortified walls of which little remains today.
In its past, it was a strategically important military site being the first "English bastide town"; it suffered various sieges during the Hundred Years' War and again in 1562 and 1572 during the Wars of Religion.
The train station was built in 1877 and the bridge over the Dordogne River in 1880, though there are signs of earlier crossings including a ford going back to Roman times.
In 1944 the local Resistance paid a heavy price when on 21 June many of Lalinde's sons perished in the Mouleydier massacre.
