Valentré Bridge in Cahors

The ancient city of Cahors was in medieval times a thriving university town. Across the river is the town's signature piece, the Pont Valentré. This magnificent fortified bridge was built between 1308 and 1500 and features a trio of towers, battlements and seven pointed arches. The Cathédrale St-Etienne dominates the old town and features a sculptured Romanesque north portal. Today the town is best known for its excellent cuisine and the fine deep red wine that is made in the surrounding vineyards.
