Sarlat Cathedral (Cathédrale Saint-Sacerdos de Sarlat) is a Roman Catholic cathedral, and national monument of France, situated in Sarlat-la-Canéda in the département of Dordogne.

The Diocese of Sarlat was created in 1317 with a number of others in the region in the aftermath of the suppression of the Albigensians. The new bishop of Sarlat was the abbot of the ancient Sarlat Abbey, the church of which became the cathedral. Rebuilding was not completed until the 1680s., although the belfry dates from the 9th century. The diocese was abolished under the Concordat of 1801 and its territory was transferred to the Diocese of Périgueux.

Sarlat-la-Canéda (Occitan: Sarlat e La Canedat), or simply Sarlat, is a commune in the Dordogne department in Aquitaine in southwestern France. The town is in a region known in France as the Périgord Noir (the Black Périgord), close by are the regions of the Green Périgord, the White Périgord, and the Purple Périgord.
