Cathedrale Saint-Sacerdos, Sarlat-la-Caneda

Admire the different historical periods in the structure of Cathedrale Saint-Sacerdos, a Roman Catholic church dedicated to Sacerdos of Limoges. The saint's bones were taken to the cathedral during the Middle Ages, but have been missing since the wars of religion. Parts of the site date to the 9th century, although most of the building structure was constructed in the 17th century. Because of its Gothic architecture and historical significance, it has been listed as a national historical monument of France.

    Because Sarlat also has managed to preserve the human scale that was conceived and that makes it an ideal city to discover walking. The best place to visit is La place du Peyrou, at the foot of St-Sacerdos Cathedral, close to the place that once occupied the Benedictine Abbey around which arose the early medieval town. Just behind the head of the Cathedral, next to the old cemetery of the canons, there is a viewpoint that must go to have a good perspective of the town. At first glance the most striking of the hamlet of Sarlat is the golden color of the well-worked stone with which the majority of its buildings are raised, but also highlights its Motley set of steep roofs. A cathedral for a helmet film old and from which to contemplate it.

    It is truly beyond my comprehension how beautiful these cathedrals can get! You actually get a full sensation of medieval ages, and subconsciously diving over 500 years to the past! Make sure to stay longer in the church, and enjoy the organ play!
