Sarlat is a jewel of medieval architecture. Strolling through the old town with its perfectly preserved ocher stones, is like walking through history. Take a close look while walking through the streets and admire the elegant Gothic and Renaissance buildings. The city was founded in the 9th C., but it is only in the 15th C. and 16th C. that the beautiful mansions appear. The most famous is the former home of Etienne de la Boëtie (judge, writer and philosopher). Apart from its architectural heritage, Sarlat is a dynamic city with a taste for refined gastronomy. Enjoy the delicious specialties from the Périgord in one of the many local restaurants and, twice a week, you can buy these, as well as local products, at the streetmarket.
