Archignac

Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Dordogne

Town north of the capital of the canton of Salignac north of Sarlat. It is a small village in the Black Perigord houses of ocher limestone often covered with slate, as his church.

It is at the intersection of country roads and in the town center which only compiles some old houses - some of which, however, are very beautiful - that is the church dedicated to Saint Étienne.

Opposite the church, is the building that hosted the old rectory until the Revolution which succeeded now the town hall. To his left, the little house was that of the artist Marcel Deviers.

The small village offers walkers the discovery of a beautiful bread oven just waiting to be put into operation or a small chestnut drying. Some houses with beautiful slate roofs are sure to attract attention.
