Lascaux Caves is a complex of caves in southwestern France famous for its Paleolithic cave paintings. The original caves are located near the village of Montignac, Dordogne. They contain some of the best-known Upper Paleolithic art. These paintings are estimated to be 17,300 years old. They primarily consist of images of large animals, most of which are known from fossil evidence to have lived in the area at the time. We visited Lascaux II, a replica of the Great Hall of the Bulls and the Painted Gallery located 200 meters away from the original that was opened in 1983 so that visitors may view the painted scenes without harming the originals.

Sarlat-la-Canéda is a medieval town that developed around a large Benedictine abbey of Carolingian origin. The medieval Sarlat Cathedral is dedicated to Saint Sacerdos. Because modern history has largely passed it by, Sarlat has remained preserved and one of the towns most representative of 14th century France.

Collonges-la-Rouge is entirely built with red sandstone and settlement here dates back to the 8th Century.
