Sarlat, the capital of “Black” Périgord, is a city that has conserved many impeccable traces of its past. Over a thousand years of architecture remain in the alleys, the stone roofs and the golden stone walls.
Sarlat became a city in the eighth century. As a border between the Kingdoms of France and England during the Hundred Years’ War, it became an English town in 1360, and was freed ten years later by Du Guesclin.
The Saint-Sacerdos cathedral was constructed during the reign of Henry IV. With the arrival of the 18th century, Sarlat lay dormant during 150 years, to then become prosperous again with the advent of railway.
The exceptional number of listed buildings per square metre makes Sarlat the top European city in terms of heritage. Sarlat has also been the natural backdrop for a number of films, past and present.
