Saint Cirq Lapopie

The stunning cliff-edge village of St-Cirq-Lapopie is perched high above the south bank of the Lot. The village features a fort, and streets, closed by strengthened doors, preserved many old houses whose frontages out of stone or wood sides date for the majority from XIIIè in XVIè centuries. Narrow, they are characterized by their tiled roof punts, with strong slopes. The streets where arcades of gravers open preserve the memory of the artisanal activities which made the richness of Saint-Cirq. Skin dressers of the street of Pélissaria, ironmongers of the street Peyrolerie and especially turners on boxwood or roubinetaïres whose workshops produced the button moulds, bowls, goblets and taps of cooperage.
