The valley of the river Vézère is simply the country of mankind. In this valley the archaeological digs go back to ancient history. In the caves and grottoes you can gaze on drawings dating back to 35,000 years before our times. However it's the paintings of the Magdalenian era that we find the most fascinating. Bison, mammoth, reindeer, horses, wolves, elks, and rhinoceros, the list is long. Sarlat has one of the best French markets, people have ever been to. The Saturday market is the biggest (and the busiest) where the Wednesday market is smaller and tends to be mainly local produce. Montignac has a wonderful street market twice a week and nearby Rouffignac has a splendid Sunday morning market where you will generally see the local farmers exhibiting their freshly picked vegetables.
There is much to see in the direct surroundings. You are in the golden triangle of the Perigord Noir between Sarlat, Montignac and Les Eyzies. Markets on several mornings in Les Eyzies, Le Bugue, Saint Cyprien, Sarlat and Montignac.
