Perched villages in the Lot valley

You can see them in the distance or by surprise, at the bend in the river: the perched villages of the Lot Valley. Medieval fortresses perched on panoramic views, flanked villages with remarkable architectural heritage, the Lot streaks sites along sculpted reliefs. Let’s get some height and crisscross this grandiose valley. From Capdenac-le-Haut, classified among Les Plus Beaux Villages de France to the geosite of Calvignac, the Lot embarks us along the water, discovering medieval sites flush with the cliff. We stroll, we look up, we observe the richness of this past.
