Lanterne des Morts : Michelin's recommendations

This cylindrical monument dating from the 12C is also known as the Tour St Bernard (St Bernard's Tower), reportedly in honour of the saint, who was said to have blessed bread in Sarlat, thus miraculously curing the sick. The building has two rooms, although the upper room is strangely inaccessible: how would the lantern have been lit? Its actual function remains a mystery but it may have been a funeral chapel.
