Off to Figeac ....

I took myself on a short bus journey
to this wonderful town.
So much to see, lots of walks, little
lanes to explore and lots of
people watching too!
 Figeac is the largest town in this part of the Lot region.  A beautifully restored medieval town and a pretty location on the Célé River, you will have lots to explore. All of Figeac's historic sites are described in a wonderful self-guided walking tour of the old city available from the Tourist Information Office.

Click on photos to enlarge.

I  really loved walking around Figeac, even though I was
my own.  I do prefer having someone to share the
day with , and stopping for a cafe or wine.

More to come .. sorry it has taken me so long!!


  1. Lovely photos as always... Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live in one of those odd shaped houses?

  2. Great photos. I was thinking the same thing as Ro, what would it be like inside those house that are shaped funny, what would the room be like????

  3. Hi Rosa and Lucy .. It would be a challenge . :-) When I see Round houses or houses with round walls sometimes that must be a challenge.

    Pleased you both like my photos , it was an amazing place, went there twice .

  4. Just imagine the stories that could be told if only walls could talk. I would have loved to stroll this town with you--such a beautiful day and a charming town.
