Périgord noir must-sees

This is one of France's most beautiful and historic regions: Périgord. Mainly in the Dordogne, it's a land of castles, nature and gastronomy. There are 4 Périgords: green (around Brantôme), purple (around Bergerac), white (around Périgord) and black (around Sarlat la Canéda). And it's the black Périgord that I'd like you to discover here.
