The Essential
Recommended
It is one of the main sites of the Lot valley: perched on a rocky escarpment, St Cirq occupies a remarkable position, looking down the left bank of the Lot from 80m, opposite a cirque of tall white cliffs. Shared by four important feudal families, it enjoyed a long period of prosperity - as its medieval houses show - and this earned it the favour of some 20C artists.
