Saint-Cirq-Lapopie

 
Saint Cirq Lapopie tourisme

The gem of the Lot valley, an absolute must… (At 1 hour from Camping Padimadour)

This medieval town is listed as one of the ‘Most beautiful villages of France’, but was also elected ‘Favorite village of the French’ in 2012. The village sets against the cliff, at 100 metres above the Lot, and seems to be rolling down like a waterfall of cobblestoned streets, Gothic fronts, fortified gates and hollyhocks. Saint-Cirq-Lapopie used to be a flourishing shipping town and was known for its wood craft. The town counts 13 historical monuments. Since the beginning of the 20th century, the town became popular with gallery owners from Paris and with surrealistic artists from the 1950s.

A nice way to discover Saint-Cirq-Lapopie is to make a trip on the Lot river with a typical wooden boat. From the river harbour of Bouziès, located a few kilometres from Saint-Cirq-Lapopie, boats leave every day, from April to October. The trip takes about 1 hour, crossing the Lot for over 8 km, ending up at Saint-Cirq-Lapopie. On the programme: a towing path hollowed out in the rocks, a manual lock operated by a sailor and of course a trip along the perched village of Saint-Cirq-Lapopie with a breathtaking view from the river.

The Grotte du Pech Merle, in Cabrerets, at 20 minutes from Saint-Cirq-Lapopie, offers a complete and authentic image of natural geological shapes including prehistorical wall paintings and engravings of more than 20.000 years old. In July and August, the number of visitors is being limited, to protect the cave. Therefore, we highly recommend you to book your tickets online a few days prior to your visit to the Grotte du Pech Merle…
