Penne-d'Agenais - Tourism in the Lot-et-Garonne

The medieval town and former stronghold of Penne-d'Agenais, whose castle was fortified by Richard the Lionheart, is today an approved "Station Verte" (nature-orientated holiday destination) combining architectural charm, a gentle way of life and a pretty location on the banks of the Lot.

Dominated by the Byzantine-Romanesque-style Notre-Dame de Peyragude basilica, recognisable from afar by its silver dome, Penne-d'Agenais's old quarter is a charming place for a stroll, with narrow sloping streets lined with pretty houses, Place Paul Froment – a pleasant square to stop in for a drink – and many arts and crafts workshops.

There's a fantastic view over the Lot valley from the viewpoint indicator near the basilica!
