Rocamadour part two

Our friends Kari and John and their children had been to Rocamadour the weekend before and also recommended the town of St Cirq Lapopie so we headed there. Ken and I argued the whole way as he wanted to take us down the road less travelled whereas I wanted to follow the signposts! James just felt conflicted as he wasn't sure who to listen to! We eventually agreed with each other and drove along a gorgeous road through century old tunnels carved out of rock - some had pillars along the side so you still had a nice view. The lot valley is lovely with each little village having their own claim to fame.

Walking down into the village.

The town square.

St Cirq is known for its great valley views and for artisan jewellers, artists, and woodworkers.

What a view!

A canal boat in the Lot river plus some adventurers on a rock!

The view over the Lot valley

Gorgeous medieval houses and gorgeous Hannah!

We decided to have a bit more of a look around the town and loved all the quirky little shops. Hannah was struggling a bit with the crowds and was being quite stroppy but seemed much more relaxed after spending ten minutes in silence in the cathedral!

We loved st Cirq, with its cobbled streets, medieval houses, jaw-dropping views and artisan shops and will hopefully make it back - although I do hope that Ken finds a more straightforward way back to the motorway next time!
