Location and orientation
Sarlat-la-Canéda is a small town in the French Dordogne. The municipality was created in 1965 when the towns of Sarlat and La Canéda merged. The small town lies in a depression of the Perigord noir. This landscape was a province in the historical southwest of France. The village of Sarlat grew around an abbey that was founded in the 9th century. The nearest major cities are Périgueux, Brive-la-Gaillarde and Bergerac.
For the American movie "Ever After" from 1998 Sarlat was chosen as one of the locations, because the city view was perceived as very picturesque.
Top 3 travel tips
Since the 19th century, the city centre of Sarlat has been divided by the Rue de la République into an eastern and a western half. On both sides there are buildings from the Middle Ages, Renaissance and Baroque. In addition to the basilica and the town hall, the former bishop's palace, the Lanterne des Morts tower and the market square are particularly worth seeing. A walk to the Place des Oies with its beautiful old houses is also worthwhile.2nd Notre-Dame on the hill
About three kilometres north of the centre of Sarlat-la-Canéda lies the Sanctuary of Notre-Dame de Temniac on a hill next to the ruins of Château de Temniac, one of which is a round tower in good condition. The small church was declared a Historic Monument as early as 1920. It probably dates from the 12th century and became a place of pilgrimage during the plague epidemic of 1688. Its masonry consists of unusually well-filled, light limestone.3. Theatrical magic against a magical backdrop
The Sarlat Theatre Festival is an institution: it has taken place since 1952 on the historical stones of the place. This makes it the second oldest theatre festival in France and the oldest in Aquitaine. Usually from the end of July to the beginning of August, both classical and modern plays are performed in the Place de la Liberté, the Jardin du Plantier and the monastery of Sainte Claire.
