About the neighbourhood
Montaigu de Quercy is one of the many historic bastide hilltop villages between the Lot, Tarn and Garonne rivers and the Canal des deux Mers/ Canal du Midi. It was on the frontline in the wars between the English and French during the time of Richard the Lionheart.
It is well positioned between the towns of Lauzerte and Tournan, stopping points on the routes to Santiago de Compostella in N. Spain, and you still see pilgrims ploughing their way across the lands. A visit to nearby Cahors with its famous bridge (as well as vineyards) and to the Abbey at Moissac are a must.
Today Montaigu itself is primarily a tourist destination for its lovely swimming lake with many amenities, for local markets, walks through lovely countryside and cycling.
