Sarlat-la-Canéda, by Day

Sarlat-la-Canéda, often simply referred to as Sarlat, is a medieval town in France’s south western Dordogne region. I visited Sarlat twice last year with my boyfriend, once during an afternoon and another time during an evening.

Here’s a selection of photos I took during our afternoon visit, after I fell in love with curry dip and we fought our way through the throngs of other tourists to take in the sights.

As you can tell, I fell in love with the old buildings. Next post, I’ll share more Sarlat photos – this time taken at night.

Bonne journée!

  1. We spent 2 summer holidays there when our son was little and had a wonderful time canoeing down the Dordogne and joining children’s activities like sack and egg & spoon races, etc. We also joined in La Fête de la Rivière, which consisted of a communal meal with the locals on typical long tables, followed by a candlelit parade of boats down the river and a dance serenaded by live music: it was fantastic!

  2. Nice evocative photos of these old buildings. (Somehow you managed to crop all those throngs of other tourists out of your photos; or had they already left town for the evening?)
