- Chapel of St. Benedict, Sarlat-la-Canéda

I'm rereading an old favorite book - Timeline by Michael Crichton. It's about time-travel back to the middle ages, and one of the towns mentioned is Sarlat-la-Canéda, which also showed up in the movie made of the novel.

Here's a bit about the town from Wikipedia ...

Sarlat-la-Canéda (Occitan: Sarlat e La Canedat), or simply Sarlat, is a commune in the Dordogne department in Aquitaine ... Sarlat is a medieval town that developed around a large Benedictine abbey of Carolingian origin. The medieval Sarlat Cathedral is dedicated to Saint Sacerdos ... Sarlat has remained preserved and one of the towns most representative of 14th century France.

On my one trip to Europe, we only got to visit Paris while we were in France - wish we could have seen more.
