Châteaux

Once the great houses of the Lords of the Lot, the various chateaux in the area are overflowing with history.

Along a walk in the famous medieval village of Saint Cirq Lapopie, climb the stairs to the ruins of the fort and discover one of the best views in the Lot valley where three noble families built their castle in the thirteenth century.

At Cénevières, open the doors of the Renaissance castle and pass through it admiring the amazing authentic decorations. The terraces offer you an absolutely exceptional view over the Lot valley.

If you look up towards the cliffs, along the valleys of the Lot and the Célé, you will be able to admire the extraordinary fortifications hewn into in the rock, known as the "Chateaux des Anglais".

These fortresses grow from history itself and will take you on a journey through the centuries.
