Our Week in the Périgord Noir in Pictures - Part II

The Château de Castlenaud.

A closer view.

The view from the top of the castle.

 There is a museum of medieval warfare in the castle which was very much enjoyed by two of our party (hint - not by Ailbhe nor I).

 Fiacra loving some weapon.

A model of the 1442 siege on the castle, the French were attacking the English.

The medieval town of Sarlat - I think the nicest town I have ever been in.


The Wednesday market in Sarlat.

The market had the most delicious food including huge cheeses.

We bought the pear chocolate apéritif - Yum!

The market had an impressive amount of foie gras and other duck and goose products. I have to say, I love foie gras.



Fiacra and Ailbhe with some foie gras geese.

Ailbhe, Finian, and Fiacra in a bell tower. It's almost impossible to get these three looking at the camera with their eyes open at the same time.
