Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Lot

Pretty village of the Lot valley, perched on its cliff overlooking the river and the vineyard. Former "castrum" built at its top, pierced by caves and steeply above the water. It was one of the residences of the Bishops of Cahors in the Middle Ages. The old episcopal castle, which houses the Town Hall, still shows today archers and triple-lined windows.
