Explore the plateaus, where the limestone paths typical of Quercy Blanc cross and intersect, and discover a remarkable view from the Calvary.

According to most historians, the word Quercy comes from cadurci, the Latin name of a Gallic tribe based in Cahors in ancient times. And it is to the limestone which crops up everywhere and which gives this white color to the houses, that Quercy Blanc owes its name.
