Saint-Cirq-Lapopie is a medieval town located 30 kilometres from Cahors, in the Occitanie region. This small architectural treasure clings to its cliff and overlooks the Lot river flowing at its feet. In 2012, the village was voted “Favourite Village of the French” and is on the list of “Most Beautiful Villages of France”. A visit not to be missed!
Slowly, as you drive past an enchanting cavalcade, you go back in time. Bush roses, cobbled alleyways and stalls full of artisans…. It is easy to imagine the bustling life of past centuries.
In the early morning hours, Saint-Cirq-Lapopie awakens with the flavours of sourdough breads and the whisper of birds. Traders, artists and residents then precede. Where. At the heart of the main street! Entirely decorated with red pennants, it is the place to stroll, cultivate yourself and get your taste buds tingling! Here, foie gras, sweets with acacia honey, surreal paintings and wood carvings mingle.
