Festival des Jeux de Théâtre in Sarlat

Since 1952, this festival has brought life to the

old stones of the medieval city. It is the second

oldest festival of its kind in France, after that of

Avignon; but also the largest in the Aquitaine and

one of the most renowned in all of France. Nearly

all the performances - including classical and

contemporary works - take place outdoors.
