Just a little away from the road from Montignac Sarlat, Saint-Geniès arises magically below the road, sheltered under slate roofs, beige gray reflective roofs marrying beautifully with the natural tones surrounding. The Perigord town houses dating back to the twelfth and fourteenth centuries are built of stone beautiful blonde. They frame an old keep, remains of the ancient castle of the lords of Gontaut. But the jewel of the village remains indisputably the Romanesque church, topped with stones, decorated with a fortified gate tower of the sixteenth century. Inside, carved tent delicate columns supporting the arches of the apse. It remains to see the castle of the fifteenth and seventeenth centuries, then, all against the church, the Gothic chapel of Cheylard that contains admirable frescoes and Bories, these dry stone huts once used as shelter for shepherds, scattered in the green countryside.
