About the place:
Cahors is a town in the Lot department of southwestern France. Its inhabitants are called Cahoriens and it is world-renowned for its wines, which have also given rise to local cheeses that can be found throughout many restaurants around this city. The region serves as an excellent base camp for exploring sights like the Dordogne River Valley (including castles), Les Grottes de Gargantua (caves with prehistoric drawings) and Quercy Blanc (a UNESCO World Heritage Site).
The city has important remains including Roman ruins, Christian sarcophagi from several hundred years after Christ’s death, etc., but above all, there are medieval buildings still standing, with much evidence about their past lives – such as old houses built over arches where goods used to pass through them under different rules in earlier times e.g. when they were guarded by soldiers of the king during centuries. Seneschals were based here to collect taxes for the King e.g. on salt, soups and wines & today they are still busy at their old traditional tasks but now it is more as merchants of wine.
Things to do in Cahors:
Take in views at one of Cahors’ many hilltop castles or chateaux. A must-see is Château de Cayx, which you can see from most parts of town and offers wonderful views over the Lot river valley below. Another great place to explore for fantastic landscapes are Montcuq Castle, perched on top of an imposing rock above this commune in the Lot department. The castle itself dates back to 1240 but its massive walls recall even older times when it was used to control the road between Limoges and Toulouse.
The town of Cahors is also home to a lively music festival that starts each year at the end of June called “Sardanes en Fête”. The program includes various concerts, shows, animation along with free workshops for children where they can learn about local traditional dances – sardane in Catalan or gasconade in French. This event takes place on both sides of Lot river which flows through Cahors city center. As an added bonus, there are plenty of events going on throughout summer including art exhibitions, concerts, and theater plays.
