Sarlat-la-Canéda is popular amongst tourists, and the architecture is one of its main draws. It’s easy to be impressed, especially when you find yourself wandering around Cathédrale Saint-Sacerdos de Sarlat.
While walking along the perimeter ledge, we saw the Jardin des Enfeus – Sarlat’s first cemetery – and decided to take a closer look.
We walked past several funerary niches, some with lovely detailing.
I liked this old cross carving. I couldn’t help but wonder if the person carving it so long ago ever imagined that people like me would stop to admire it hundreds of years later.
That’s one of the things I enjoy about travelling; learning about people from times gone by. Not just the differences between our lives, but also the commonalities.
