This picturesque town with its old flagstone-roofed houses and castle stands on the banks of the River Lot. The castle (11C-19C), a charming mishmash of shapes and different-coloured stones, has been gradually renovated since Valéry Giscard d'Estaing bought it in 2005. The relics of St Fleuret are kept in the 15C church opposite. Altarpieces from the 18C-19C.
