Page 12 of 28: Pech Merle and Cahors

Cahors bridge

The weather was cloudy in the mornings, but it didnít really rain for at least a month, so the river was low, we could walk in the water.

On Tuesday we had an appointment at Pech Merle, so we went there for a visit. This was one of the most interesting caves with well preserved drawings. To get there the GPS brought us through very small roads. So small, there was green moss all the way along in the middle of asphalt, and one way only and the forest was dark around our car. We were surprised to see a couple of houses there. I knew there was a freeway, but never got there; we just crossed it at one point.

After our visit we went to Cahors for lunch. I wanted to try their cuisine. La petite cour is easy to find as it is right on the main road along the river in Cahors facing the old bridge. Despite a weekday, the restaurant was full and only two tables were left, one of which was under sun. I chose the shaded table on the terrace while my husband was parking our car.
