Set on a Peninsula ensconced in a loop of the Lot river, the former capital of the Cadourques (a Celtic tribe) took as its emblem the Pont Valentré, a fortified bridge with three towers that spans the river. Cahors, City of art and history, has a remarkably well-preserved medieval quarter of narrow lanes and tall houses arranged around the cathedral. The capital of Quercy, a region renowned for its cuisine, lent its name to a famous wine which has graced the tables of the royal courts of Europe for centuries.
