Sarlat: West side

On the other side of the Traverse

Sarlat’s West Side is on the the other side of the Rue de la République, or the Traverse.

Equally interesting but much less busy and many of the buildings of note are here. The main street on this side is the Rue Jean-Jacques Rousseau.

The Poor Clares

A little further along is the site of the 17th Century St Clare’s Convent. Nowadays it consists of low-rent housing, something which the religious order of Poor Clares would have no doubt approved. Just off the main street the Tour de Guet, the old watchtower and the Tour de Bourreau which was the executioner’s Tower, are well worth seeing.

There are a few restaurants on this side of town. However, for something typically French don’t miss Café Le Lébérou on Rue Jean-Jacques Rousseau.
