From meander to meander, the Lot nibbled at the limestone plateau and Luzech missed being an island...Leave for a walk through time, from the Gallo-Roman oppidum to the medieval dungeon.
Various excavations carried out around Luzech and on the Oppidum of the Impernal led to numerous discoveries: ammonites from the Upper Jurassic of the Quercy region, Gallo-Roman remains from the occupation of Impernal in the 1st century BC, but also footprints and traces of dinosaurs, in particular a molding of a 60 m2 footpath, dating from around 140 million years.
With your back to the tourist information office, cross the Place du Canal and take the main street of the city, opposite.
Go towards the tower. Climb the stairs to the foot of the dungeon. Continue to follow the GR® 36 and reach the orientation table on the Im oppidumpernal (very beautiful panorama). Continue on the GR®. Note the Gallo-Roman site.
This ridge path leads straight to the “Cévenne de Caïx” (paragliding take-off area, panoramic view of the Lot valley).
Then turn left. Note on the right a gariotte. Go down the path and come out on a road; turn right, pass in front of a small barn.
At the second path on the right, continue the gently sloping path. Arrive at a crossroads with a beautiful stone cross.
Go down the path on the right which leads to the hamlet of “Caïx”.
To turn left. Pass above the Château de Caïx. Arrive at the crossroads with the cross (5), take the same path as on the way out.
Come out on a road, follow it to the right for 50 m, veer onto a path to the left. At the intersection with a road, turn right for 200 m, then a path on the left. Turn right twice at the next two intersections.
Follow left on the path, at the crossroads of the four rural paths, turn left towards the hamlet of "Calvignac".
Cross the hamlet, continue for 1 km, at the crossroads turn right towards Fages. Do 500m.
