France: Cahors – Exploring the Town

Besides the amazing bridge Pont Valentre, the medieval town of Cahors (UNESCO World Heritage site) has some good sightseeing to offer. The town has existed since Roman times and some of the remains of old Roman structures attest to that. There is also a grand Cathedral Saint-Etienne, narrow cobblestone streets of the old town, beautiful open Jouvenel Square, several churches, and more. Cahors is also famous for its Cahors wines that bear DOP designation (mostly Malbec grapes), truffles, and fois gras.
