• Cahors

     

     

    Leaving Saint Cirq Lapopie, we've cut through the plateau to go downstream Lot. I do not know if it's the heat of the city or town simply, but after all those charming villages, we have not wanted to stay very long.

    Yet Cahors, nestled in a bend of the Lot, also has a medieval character. Two examples: Valentré Bridge and St. Stephen's Cathedral. The symbol of Cahors is the Valentré bridge. It dates from the fourteenth century and intended to defend the city, he had a deterrent as never attacked. Today, it is on all bottles of Cahors.
