Things to do: sightseeing, shopping, historic sites

Medieval Capital of the Dordogne Valley

Sarlat-la-Caneda is the capital of the former Périgord Noir, now referred to as the Aquitaine region that is home to a historical area consisting of impeccably preserved 14th-century buildings and sites. The present-day city on the department of Dordogne is the end of the train line that connects with Bordeaux in the west. You can walk around the historic Old Town with primarily pedestrian streets lined with interesting, restored stone buildings. Due to the natural and historical beauty of the town, Andy Tennant shot his movie "Ever After, a Cinderella Story" to reflect 14th-century France. The town produces cèpes and truffle mushrooms as well as cheese and walnut oil that you can try in local stores and restaurants.
