Old Sarlat

Highly recommended
Divided in two by the rue de la République, known as the "traverse", Sarlat consists of two distinct quarters, one of which was more aristocratic in nature than the other. This town so typical of the Périgord is renowned for its architecture, with fine mansions built from honey-coloured limestone and adorned with attractive inner courtyards. Restoration began in 1964 in order to preserve the town's old districts.
