Visions of France- The Lot Département

Whilst our usual menu of practical information on visiting France is on hold during the Coronavirus Pandemic, we are showcasing some of our favourite photos of la Belle France, pending the day when we can get back on the road or autoroute

The Lot Département extends through glorious landscapes to the north of Cahors , south of Rocamadour and east of Gourdon (46 Lot, Occitanie). The views are seemingly endless and conceal a world of quiet, sometimes abandoned villages and rich limestone landscapes. This view was taken from Reilhaguet between the old N20 (D820)and the new autoroute A20.

For more on the area see Helen Martin’s book “LOT – Travels through a limestone landscape in Southwest France“.
