Cahors : Michelin's recommendations
The former capital of the Cadourques (a Celtic tribe) has chosen the Pont Valentré, a fortified bridge with three towers spanning the River Lot as its emblem. Cahors, a city of art and history, has a remarkably preserved old quarter of narrow lanes and tall houses which bear witness to the town’s medieval history. The capital of the Quercy is a region renowned for its cuisine and has lent its name to a famous wine which has graced the tables of royal courts around Europe for centuries.
