Sarlat is considered one of the best preserved cities of the middle ages and hence hosts all the movies from Cyrano de Bergerac to Jean of Arc to the most recent 2020 movie from famous Ridley Scott which starred Matt Damon and Ben Affleck.
The famous geese of artist sculptur Lalanne and incredibly massive doors of ancient cathedrale by well known architect Jean Nouvel.
Sarlat has excellent shopping facilities of all kinds (including 4 supermarkets), plus a wealth of local markets, restaurants from Michelin-starred to more modest establishments.
Apart from hosting a renowned international film festival every November, Sarlat boasts one of the best day-time Saturday markets in the region – held in the heart of the beautiful medieval town centre.
This centre, floodlit at night, has all the atmosphere of a glamorous stage set and is well worth a nocturnal visit.
