Montpezat-de-Quercy, a fortified town in Quercy Blanc, is typical of the area with its central square with covered galleries and its half-timbered houses. This charming place has a glorious past, with the illustrious Des Prés family having left the village with some remarkable features. Indeed, in the 14th century, Cardinal Pierre des Prés erected the beautiful Southern European Gothic-style Collegiate Church of St. Martin. Two centuries later, at the initiative of Jean IV des Prés, who was the Bishop of Montauban at the time, tapestries depicting the life of St. Martin were specially created for the chancel in the collegiate church. This wonderful series of Flemish draperies has been well-preserved and is greatly admired by lovers of ancient tapestries. On top of this gem comes another treasure, made up of religious statues and wedding chests.
