A stopping place on the Way of St James at the heart of the Lot Valley, the medieval town of Estaing forms a harmonious whole, with its old houses, castle and keep, and old Gothic bridge over the Lot. You can of course admire this magnificent scene from the opposite riverbank. While this view of the whole town is particularly remarkable, the historical centre is also worth a closer look, if only to see the Church of St Fleuret, the Cayron Mansion - which is now the town hall - and Estaing Castle, where you can learn about the history of its various owners on a tour, guided or otherwise.
