Between Limousin and Quercy

Between Limousin and Quercy

This hike covers the last, wooded and undulating foothills of the Massif Central. You will discover charming medieval villages, Saint Céré dominated by the imposing château’s ruins, Beaulieu sur Dordorgne built around a monastery, Carennac, known for its cloister and the château where Fenelon stayed, Loubressac perched on a ridge and Autoire with its magnificent houses flanked by pepper pot turrets. You will cross the Glanes or Queyssac vineyards, which produce excellent wines. You will penetrate a world of darkness, visiting the Grottes de Presque (Presque Grotto) and the Gouffre de Padirac, where for centuries the gaping hole was regarded as one of the gates of Hell and which contains marvels fashioned and sculpted by nature. Finally you will cross the Causse, a limestone plateau covered with sparse pastureland and stunted shrubs to reach Saint Céré, the end of this walk.
