the first impression from this place is that it has a lot of history. each and every one of the buildings you can see are hundreds of years old and to meander through the old town without a direct route is a delight for tourists. the souvenir shops sell typical products of the region and are very good, but you should get your wallet ready, because it's a town that lives off of tourists. however, it is beautiful and highly recommended.
Getting lost in the alleys of the old town of Sarlat is a great experience. This medieval city, known internationally as the "jewel" of the Black Perigord, is rather touristy but charming. The ideal thing is to find accommodation that allows you to discover all of the Perigord. There are so many things to see! It is an area with great cultural heritage, with many dreamy villages, castles, gardens, caves ... I was there for one week, and I needed more days! But if you have a tight budget you can always find accommodation in a village on the outskirts of town which are much cheaper. You can make reservations on the website. The Perigord is one of my favorite areas in France, along with Alsace. Well ... I still haven't been to Brittany. This page is also very interesting: Http :/ / es.Franceguide.Com / edito.Html?

This square is the heart of Sarlat. A small population of the stupendous French Périgord region. On Saturdays it's chock full of market stalls that pervade the entire city. The stone buildings make you feel like you've traveled back in time.
Instinctively, the first men (referring to first Homo sapiens, sapiens) chose the Périgord, so this region has something. It boasts the world's largest concentration of natural and prehistoric caves, castles, mansions and manor houses, where the peculiar stone of this region when satiated with the sun reflects a golden light. Beyond its own culture, and its people, I want to stress how wonderful the food is. A paradise for truffles, foie gras, mushrooms, "confit", pasta and other dried meats from the field, and we can't forget the Wine...you can find some of the best in the world
Imagine a soap made of donkey milk! Does that sound weird? No, I guarantee, it is fabulous! These soaps and other beauty products have a base of donkey milk and are sold in a nice little shop called L'Âne des Collines, in the heart of Sarlat, the capital of French Périgord. But the star product of the boutique is undoubtedly the soap, made with 27% milk. It has a 100% vegetable base, with no sweeteners and there are fifteen wonderful scents to choose from. It is great for dry and sensitive skin. I tried the lavender, fig leaves and wild blackberry varieties. A 100 gram bar costs 5.50 € and lasts a long time. Since special soaps cost between € 6.50 and € 7.00, I think that it is a perfect gift: Not too expensive, not too bulky to carry in your luggage and has a wonderful fragrance. If you understand French, visit their website and discover more about how they use donkey milk to make this soap. You can also check the prices of their products.
Classified as a city of art and history, Sarlat is famous for having a lot of historical monuments. At the heart of Sarlat you'll find the Lucien Maleville Plaza, a landmark of the old city surrounded by medieval houses. In the center you can admire the Town Hall built in 1625. This is a nice place with many artists and entertainment, bringing together visitors and tourists. I was able to discover the charms of the medieval city with a guide. The tours lasted about 1h30 and cost between 3 € and 5 €.
The castle is still inhabited so you can only see a part. There's a legend of "the white lady" which says that the sixteenth-century Castilian Teresa of Saint Clar was caught with her lover when her husband returned home from war. As punishment, she was ordered to remain imprisoned in a small room in the north tower for 15 years.
