Rocamadour, one of France's main tourist attractions, the Alzou stream, the causses and plateaux... that's the setting for this itinerary. Starting from L'Hospitalet, this tour is as fascinating for the beauty of the landscape as for the heritage you come across en route. After following the Alzou valley, you pass near Lacave, overlooked by the castle of Belcastel. A photo stop is a must before starting the climb, which even the most experienced will remember for a long while. This climb will cease to occupy your thoughts once you are back up on the causse with its stony tracks. One of the most remarkable tours of the selection !
The Lot's character is formed by its 'causses' (limestone plateaux) through which the Lot, Dordogne and Célé valleys have carved their way. It is studded with major tourist attractions and beautiful villages such as Rocamadour, Cahors, Figeac and Saint Cirq Lapopie…. Man and Nature have both left their imprint on the Pech Merle cave and Padirac Chasm. When you're rambling or cycling, the unspoiled, authentic nature of the Lot is plain to see. Home to excellent local produce and fine food and wines, the Lot has many treats to offer your taste buds, including truffles, foie gras, lamb and melons from Quercy, and Cahors Malbec Wine.
