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!
Cultural and tourist feature of Penne- d'Agenais lies in its art workshops. True creators welcome visitors to their studios boutique from July 1 to August 31 every day. Weaving, jewelry, leather goods, blown glass... Two workshops are open year round : the weaving and jewelery.
