The Cele Valley

Between cliffs and troglodyte houses, the Célé Valley undulates in a route that is sometimes wild and sometimes poetic. Substantially parallel to that of the Lot, its course ricochets from one landscape to another, inscribing its passage in the limestone plateaus. At once black, white and warmed with ocher, the high cliffs suddenly become less mineral. By its landscapes and its characteristics, the Célé offers a variation of walks.

Following its course, the rock walls open up and reveal their dark caves adorned with prehistoric drawings, their pretty villages, their troglodyte houses. Without forgetting an astonishing fauna and flora.

There are a good number of Mediterranean species, shrub jasmine, passerine warblers or even the serrated magician, an insectivorous grasshopper without wings.

A stopover in the villages

Start by Marcilhac-sur-Célé. Spread out around its abbey whose Romanesque church has preserved its austere beauty, this village, bathed in the freshness of the banks of the Célé, exudes tranquillity. A little further, push the visit to Espagnac-Sainte Eulalie, Corn and Camboulit via Beduer.

During your visit to Sauliac, discover houses clinging to the rock resembling swarms of bees.

If you take the valley road from Figeac, discover other charming sites such as Boussac, Corn, Espagnac Ste Eulalie, Brengues, St Sulpice, Marcilhac sur Célé, Sauliac sur Célé or even Cabrerets with the Pech Merle cave which is a prehistoric decorated cave and finally Bouziès at the confluence with the Lot.
