      The heart of the "Dordogne" area is, naturally, the department of the Dordogne, centered on its capital Perigueux: the French tend to refer to this area not as "la Dordogne" but as "le Périgord", and in France the area is most famous for its gourmet delights, notably paté de foie gras, walnuts and tourists, the epicentre, indeed the epicurean centre, of this Dordogne is an area. Meanwhile do not overlook the lovely Lot valley south of the Drtordogne where there are many beautiful villages most of which are less well-known and so less crowded with visitors than those in the Dordogne valley itself. Saint-Cirq-Lapopie is perhaps the best known of the Lot villages but there are many others worth exploring.
