Sarlat le Caneda

Sarlat is the hub of activity in the Dordogne.  It draws people from miles around on market day (Wednesday morning and Saturday). 

Unfortunately, by this time the digital camera had stopped working and so all the pictures from here on are from a little disposable camera whose quality is sorely lacking.  The quantity of pictures was also limited so I did not take any frames at La Roque St-Christophe, but you ought to click this link and see for yourself.  We came upon this attraction on our way back from seeing Lascaux II and found it fascinating enough to spend several hours there.  The rock face looks as though some giant took an ice-cream scoop and gouged out a horizontal strip.  In this depression there have been dwellings from Magdalenian times (Cro-magnon) through the present.  During WW-II it was the largest open-air bomb shelter in the world.
