Maison de la Boétie

Interesting
Built in 1525 in Italian Renaissance style, this mansion was the birthplace of Étienne de La Boétie (b 1530), a good friend of the French writer Montaigne. The fine façade is adorned with large mullion windows framed by pilasters carved with medallions and lozenges. The house stands alongside the passage Henri-de-Ségogne, an attractive alleyway typical of Sarlat.
