Cathedrale Saint-Sacerdos, Sarlat-la-Caneda

#1 of 6 in Historic Sites in Sarlat-la-Caneda
Church · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
Admire the different historical periods in the structure of Cathedrale Saint-Sacerdos, a Roman Catholic church dedicated to Sacerdos of Limoges. The saint's bones were taken to the cathedral during the Middle Ages, but have been missing since the wars of religion. Parts of the site date to the 9th century, although most of the building structure was constructed in the 17th century. Because of its Gothic architecture and historical significance, it has been listed as a national historical monument of France. Use the English-language informational sheet to tour the site on your own and understand what you're seeing. Plan my Sarlat-la-Caneda trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

  • High columns and overall in a good shape. I thought it was a standard catholic church otherwise but behind the church is a nice steppe kind of a structure mostly seen in Buddhist architecture.
  • The town of Serlat is best known for the flea markets that run Saturday and Wednesday. This church is nice, but nothing outstanding or notable in terms of French cathedrals.
