Argentat is a commune in the department of Corrèze in central France. It is the capital of the canton of Argentat.


Argentat is situated on the Dordogne River, to the south west of Bort-les-Orgues. It is the point where the Maronne, a tributary of the Dordogne, converges with the famous river. It lies on the border of three regions, Limousin, Quercy and Auvergne, although it officially lies within the Limousin region.


The Dordogne River is an impressive sight and flows beneath a viaduct, Le Pont de la République, linking the north and south sections of the town.
