A region of sheep and goat breeding, the Regional Nature Park of the Quercy Limestone Plateaux, which extends over 175,717 hectares, is also the realm of dry stone. Cliffs, caves, chasms, valleys and limestone plateaux characterise this magnificent area. The typical and very charming features of this protected park are dry lawns separated by low stone walls, beautiful buildings and delightful little dry-stone shepherds' huts. A heritage that should absolutely be discovered! This unspoiled area is also great for hiking with its 1000 kilometres of path. The sacred town of Rocamadour, the magnificent cliffside village of Saint-Cirq-Lapopie, the famous Pech-Merle cave and the impressive Padirac chasm, are prestigious sites that shouldn't be missed.
