Sorges en Perigord: The capital of the truffle.
Of course, the best known in the world and the most appreciated variety in the world is the Perigord truffle, the famous “Tuber Melanosporum”. Sorges has dedicated the Truffle Museum (the Ecomusée) to this famous mushroom. Here in the Périgord, the village of Sorges has been renowned for more than a century as providing a paradise for truffle lovers, gourmets and aesthetes throughout the world. Opened in April 1982, The Ecomusée, which from its beginning was a unique concept, presents a whole range of knowledge about the Périgord Truffle and its cultivation. A visit to it will be of great interest to young and old alike.
From this exceptional Ecomusée, you will be able to follow a path which will take you to the “truffières“ and enable you to understand the fascinating natural system of truffle cultivation. This trail, which is close to the village, and complements a visit to the Ecomusée, is actually a pleasant 3 kms walk through the “causse périgourdin” . ( “causse “ is the name given to a limestone plateau ). You can take the walk on your own – with a free map and notes which may be obtained from the Ecomusée– or with a guide, by appointment. The visit will help your understanding of the “Black Diamond “ , as ten observation points along its length will introduce you to all aspects of the truffle.
