The must sees of the Lot

Exceptional places, Great Sites, beautiful villages... all the things that make the reputation of the Lot and that you really shouldn't miss

The most beautiful villages of the Lot

There are six of them. Six villages which have been awarded the much-coveted title «one of the Most Beautiful Villages in France » (Carennac, Loubressac, Autoire, St Cirq Lapopie, Capdenac le Haut and Cardaillac). Because their roofs of brown tiles, their ochre-coloured stone, their windows decorated with carvings or perhaps their square pigeon-towers give them exceptional character, these villages epitomise the essence of the Lot itself. Many others are more than worth a visit and, although they’re all different, the attraction they have in common is unquestionably their charm.
