Village de Saint-Léon-sur-Vézère

25 km north of Sarlat between Les Eyzies and Lascaux, Saint-Léon-sur-Vézère is based, as its name suggests, on a loop of the La Vézère river. Classified as one of the most beautiful in France, the village displays the charms of the medieval heritage of Périgord Noir: maze of couredoux (narrow streets), houses of warm, blond stone with coyal roofs, large monuments which give it its character.
Among them, the 12th century Romanesque church of Saint-Léonce, classified as a historic monument, which hosts the concerts of the Périgord Noir Musical Festival in summer, the 16th century Château de Clérans with its park planted with centuries-old trees, the Manoir de la Salle built in the 14th century, the expiatory chapel from the 16th century and its tombs from the 13th century. The commune also includes three prehistoric sites, Sous le Roc, le Moustier and la Rochette.
