Local Attractions

Figeac lies on the River Célé, 71km east of Cahors and some 8km north of the Lot. It's a beautiful town with an unspoilt medieval centre, not too encumbered by tourism.

It owes its beginnings to the foundation of an abbey in the early days of Christianity in France, one which quickly became wealthy because of its position on the pilgrim routes to both Rocamadour and Compostela.

In the Middle Ages it became a centre of tanning, which accounts for the many houses whose top floors have solelhos, or open-sided wooden galleries. Again, as so often, it was the Wars of Religion that pushed it into eclipse, for Figeac threw in its Lot with the nearby Protestant stronghold of Montauban and suffered reprisals by the victorious royalists in 1662.

Roads and train line both funnel you automatically into the town centre, where the Hôtel de la Monnaie surveys place Vival. It's a splendid building whose origins go back to the thirteenth century, when the city's mint was located in this district. The building now houses the tourist office (www.tourism-figeac.com) where you can find details of the summer Arts and Theatre Festival, mountain biking, horse riding, canoeing, rock climbing, walking and many other activities.

In the streets radiating off to the north of the square Caviale, République, Gambetta and their cross-streets there's a delightful range of houses of the medieval and classical periods, both stone and half-timbered with brick noggings, adorned with carvings and colonnettes, ogees, and interesting bits of ironwork.

At the end of these streets are the two small squares of place Carnot and place Champollion, both of great charm. The former is the site of the old halles, under whose awning cafés now spreads their tables.

Jean-François Champollion, who cracked Egyptian hieroglyphics by deciphering the triple text of the Rosetta Stone, was born in a house off the square, and the building now houses a very interesting museum dedicated to his life and work. At the end of this alley, a larger-than-life reproduction of the Rosetta Stone forms the floor of the tiny Place des Écritures.
