Visiting Dordogne Valley in France is like stepping back in time.

I couldn’t stop taking pictures during my visit; there was so much beauty to be found. If you are a landscape, street, or food photographer, there are plenty of interesting places to capture. I particularly liked Sarlat, a town famous for its Saturday Food Market, and lively atmosphere that attracts locals and tourists alike. Sarlat is perfect for people-watching and stocking up on delicious French produce.

La Roque-Gageac is a wonderful village built on a cliffside with buildings that have survived since the 12th century.And Rocamadour is another charming hilltop hamlet that has served as an important pilgrimage destination for centuries. Its church, Notre Dame, contains a wooden Black Madonna that became famous for its healing powers, attracting pilgrims on their way to and from the Santiago de Compostela.

With its picturesque villages and castles, little towns built on limestone cliffs, caves with stalagmites and stalactites, and, of course, incredible food, it’s impossible not to fall in love with this beautiful region of France.
