What a feat of architecture this is. Lovely setting and well worth a couple of hours there. Lovely to see great history alive like this. Unfortunately the town itself doesn't encourage you to dwell for long.

Very unique, in a beautiful setting. Great views. Fortified bridge with it's three towers is very different and interesting. Pedestrian only, you can walk around take good photos, and explore. Cahors must see sight! Especially beautiful at sunset.
This fortified bridge has been beautifully restored and is well worth a short visit. There are parking facilities nearby on the town side but on-street spaces on the other side of the river can be difficult to find.
A 14th cent. fortified bridge at its best. And you can even walk across it. Be sure to spy out the demon captured in stone.
