The «Black Périgord» with its wide forests and castles watching over the Dordogne river is home of Sarlat-la-Canéda.

In the Middle Ages Sarlat grew larger, richer, and became an important trading centre. Many houses from this time were built by wealthy mearchants.

Truffels, foie gras, mushrooms and morels, nuts, candied meat, and, and, and ... are some of the finest culinary treats.

In the streets between the old houses time has not stopped. Historical and modern things make the perfect match here.

Sarlat-la-Canéda was a rich trading metropolis. What the fat-cats home looked like is on display in town.

Strolling through Sarlat during daytime is nice. In the evening and at night, when the gas lamps are lit, this town becomes timeless.
