Views of the surrounding area are amazing from this little park way above the river.
I suppose you could say Domme is touristy, but no number of tourists could possibly detract from the views in this town. Take time to walk through the village because it is thoroughly charming and yes, you certainly can shop for souvenirs here.
This would be a great base for exploring Sarlat, La Roque Gageac, Beynac and the prehistoric caves of the region.
