  Boetie mansion
by balhannah

On my walk through the streets of Sarlat, I came across this rather unusual looking building. It is known as the Boetie Mansion. It was built in 1525 in Italian Renaissance style by an Antoine de la Boetie. His son Etienne, born there in 1530, was a famous French writer.

It is described on the website as having large mullioned windows framed by pilasters, carved with medallions and diamond shapes.

Painting exhibition's are held inside.


Address: medieval part of Sarlat
