Le Lac de la Pluie - La Grande Pendeloque (2015)_04 © D. Butaeye-SES de Padirac

After a vertiginous descent by lift or on foot down to a depth of 103 metres below the ground, you take a trip in a small boat on the underground river through majestic galleries. Then the Grande Pendeloque comes into view - a giant 60 m high stalactite - which seems to hang by a thread, admiring itself in the Rain Lake. After disembarking, you take a walking tour to the Lake of Gours and the Great Dome Cavern whose vault rises 94 metres above you. This cavern is full of concretions of all shapes and sizes: candelabras, cascades of calcite, eccentrics...Nature's own Baroque sculpture gallery, formed over millions of years.

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.
