CAHORS   www.tourisme-cahors.fr

 

As it approaches Cahors (city of art and history), the Lot flows in wide meanderings. It is here, where the river makes one of its beautiful loops, that Cahors was established in Roman times. In the Middle Ages the city became a commercial and financial centre on a European scale. A real golden age to be relived when visiting the old centre, intact and wonderfully alive.

 

Points of interest:

 

Pont Valentré (world heritage)

ce pont de passerelle est le symbole de la ville.

Cathédrale Saint-Étienne (world heritage)

Église Saint-Barthélémy

Secret Gardens

They are unique in France. The secret gardens of Cahors conquered the nooks and crannies of the town, an original way to hang out at the turn of medieval streets

Le Mont Saint-Cyr

Grimpez au belvédère de Mont-Saint-Cyr: la vue y est sublime! Soit au petit matin quand la brume se déchire pour révéler la ville, soit la nuit, lorsque les lumières illuminent rues et ruelles, ou bien encore en plein jour…

Under the arcades of the former medieval shops are restaurants, cafés and shops. In the shade of the plane trees  the boulevard Gambetta invites, a legacy of the 19th century, out for a relaxing walk.
