Figeac in the Middle Ages was a dynamic trading centre open to the world. The old houses which belonged to the merchants are the most spectacular heritage of those days. Exceptionally well preserved, the architecture and decoration follows the evolution of art during the middle ages from Romanesque to Gothic. From the Hôtel de la Monnaie to the houses round Place Champollion, each building gives us the opportunity to discover the “art de vivre” of medieval towns. This morning depart from Sarlat and enjoy a private guided walking tour of the historical town center.

In the afternoon, discover Conques and its world renowned Abbey. The original monastery building at Conques was an eighth-century oratory built by monks fleeing the Saracens in Spain. The second phase of construction, which was completed by the end of the eleventh-century, included the building of the five radiating chapels, the ambulatory with a lower roof, the choir without the gallery and the nave without the galleries. The third phase of construction, which was completed early in the twelfth-century, was inspired by the churches of Toulouse and Santiago Compostela. Like most pilgrimage churches Conques is a basilica plan that has been modified into a cruciform plan. Here, you will enjoy a private guided walking tour of the village and of the Abbey. During some free time you will also have the opportunity to visit the museum that houses the legendary relics of Sainte Foy. Return to Sarlat.
