The Lot valley, must-see places
The Lot is above all a feast of places all more incredible than the others. Visiting them will allow you to approach the culture of yesteryear, characterised in the villages, caves and buildings of the department. Among these unmissable places, the Valentré medieval bridge is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is famous for Cahors. Take the time to cross it on foot, its enigmatic legend will perhaps be unveiled …
When you come to the Lot, make a stop at the Pech Merle cave. Truer than life, the cave is authentic and will send you 25,000 years back. Your children will be dazzled by its 70 animal and human representations, its kilometer of galleries, its 7 rooms of mineral concretions and other prehistoric paintings.
Finish off your journey in the Lot through the rift of Padirac. First abyss of France and undoubtedly the most fascinating in Europe, the visit extends over no less than 103 meters underground. The trip is carried out aboard a boat on the underground river. Great moment guaranteed!
