The Lot River winds its way around limestone cliffs and cliff faces, but also through a fertile landscape with vineyards on terraces, creating countless bends that give it a special charm. The medieval towns, villages and castles are as close as the eye can see. Luzech, the last stronghold of the Gauls, the silhouette of Mercuès Castle on the horizon... Here, in particular, the river has retained its original character. The Valentré Bridge in Cahors protects the town of Saint-Cirq-Lapopie. A visit to this part of France is a hit!
