The area is well known as many in France are for its wine, especially its Cahors red wine. Some can be sampled in one of the many restaurants in the city such as The Balandre, which is a formal establishment perfect for special occasions, and is a choice for those where budget isn't a main concern.

If looking for a more relaxed alternative you can try Bordeaux, which serves a great range of French and European cuisine for a reasonable price, so is a good choice for families or even those on a budget. If you are just looking to sample the wine and not eat then you can visit one of the many vineyards that can be found along the D8 road to the west side of the city near the rivers.

The Valentre Bridge is a popular site amongst tourists and is a landmark of the town.The attraction was completed in 1378 and restored in 1879. The latter year saw the placement of a small sculptured devil to the tower.

Cahors is the capital of the Lot department and this is an extremely picturesque city which lies in the middle of a twist in a river. There is spectacular medieval architecture everywhere you look including the amazing Bridge of Valentre. Visitors can see wonderful monuments like the Saint Etienne Cathedral and the Arc de Diane which was near the ancient Roman baths.

Yet this has not always been a place of peace and suffered considerably during the Hundred Years war and the Religious Wars. Wherever you go there are fascinating historical stories to uncover which makes for an exhilarating trip.
