To achieve this, our heritage promotion officers, qualified guides and Tourist Offices all work closely together. For holidaymakers, but also for other visitors and residents, they come up with a host of ways of giving them a wonderful experience of their town, their bastide or their valley. They will introduce you to the local ways and customs, revealing their secrets and subtleties.
For example, they will help you grasp the finer points of the street layout in Villefranche de Rouergue. You will see how the different parts of Cahors fit together, from the remains of the Roman baths to the Badernes district.
In Montauban, you will get to grips with the legacy of the political, religious and economic powers that have become intimately linked over the course of the centuries.
With the Villes et Pays d’Art et d’Histoire, historical centres become an open book, the exceptional becomes part of the everyday and the adventure of our heritage awaits, you could say, around the next corner.
