Tour de Montcuq
MONTCUQ-EN-QUERCY-BLANC
tour-ph cecile

Classified as a "Historic Monument" in 1904, work was done on the keep on several occasions during the 20th C. In 2009, the municipality of Montcuq, with the help of the State, the Lot General Council and the Regional Council, undertook renovation works to the interior : reconstruction of the vault in the first room, putting in intermediate floors... Now, visitors can see the 4 rooms, the vaults, fireplaces and latrines... and from the top of the tower, enjoy the superb view over the village, and the surrounding valleys and plateaux. There are three exhibitions on view here : a permanent one relating to the village in the Middle Ages, one on the heritage of the Lot and one about Nino Ferrer.
