Today we took a drive from Sarlat to visit the towns of Carsac, Domme, La Roque-Gageac, and Beynac. In Carsac we stopped to check out a pretty little church, one that had the inside details of a big church but in a more intimate size. Domme is a hilltop town with a nice view of the Dordogne river valley. La Roque-Gageac, where we had lunch, is a photogenic carved-into-the-rock town squeezed between a limestone cliff and the Dordogne river. And, finally, Beynac is like La Roque-Gageac (pretty buildings, check; river, check; rock cliff, check) but adds a well-preserved hilltop castle, Chateau de Beynac, as icing on the cake. Most of today's photos are from the castle.
