Lot tourist informationwhere to go - what to see - what to do
The Lot department is proud of its fine, local produce - from the truffles, to confit of duck & goose, to dark Cahor wines and the goat's cheese of Rocamadour - you won't be disappointed.
Three rivers flow through this department, the Dordogne to the north, the Cele in the centre and the Lot to the south.
The first two rivers are generally given over to kayaking and canoeing. Boat trips are more popular on the Lot and provide an enjoyable way to see the villages and vineyards that drop down into the river.
Worth visiting are the medieval centres of Cahors & Figeac and the 25,000-year-old prehistoric caves (Grotte de Pech-Merle) near Cabrerets.
- Gouffre de Padirac - a geological wonder awaits you at the Gouffre de Padirac - a massive crater formed by the collapse of a cave.
- Cahors - is the place to head to sample truffles and almost black Cahors wines - try the Saturday market where locals enjoy divulging the secret ingredients. A riverboat trip is a great way to see the stunning scenery and one of France's most photographed sites - the Pont Valentre Bridge.
- Marcilhac-sur-Cele - this 10th century Benedictine abbey is of interest, as is the Grotte de Bellevue just outside of Marcilhac with its magical rock formations.
