Ideas for walks

The Dordogne River and its tributaries glide through the landscape, forming natural sites of stunning beauty and variety. The Dordogne has played an important strategic and commercial role in this vast region. As a navigable route, it is a vital artery and ensures business exchanges which are indispensable for the survival of these lands.  The ports line the river at the end of ancient roads where wagons used to go, laden with salt and wine. The ports also made it possible for pilgrims to cross the river and reach the Causse de Gramat and the medieval town of Rocamadour, famous for its Maria cult. The  Valley is dotted with picturesque villages, monastic and fortified towns or “bastides” with houses and residences from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, such as Loubressac, Autoire, Carennac, Creysse, Bretenoux, Gramat...
