The Lot is a delightful and un-spoilt department of France, the area is beautiful, with landscapes of forests, undulating hills, rivers and wild flowers. The Lot is also famed for its lovely towns and villages, with many villages boasting the accolade of being amongst the most beautiful in France. The Lot's character is formed by its 'causses' (limestone plateaux) through which the Lot, Dordogne and Célé valleys have carved their way. It is studded with major tourist attractions and beautiful villages such as Rocamadour, Cahors, Figeac and Saint Cirq Lapopie…. Man and Nature have both left their imprint on the Pech Merle cave and Padirac Chasm. When you're rambling or cycling, the unspoiled, authentic nature of the Lot is plain to see. Home to excellent local produce and fine food and wines, the Lot has many treats to offer your taste buds, including truffles, foie gras, lamb and melons from Quercy, and Cahors Malbec Wine.
Marcilhac-sur-Célé, village is situated beside the Célé river, has a bar/café/restaurant, a boulangerie.

From Marcilhac-sur-Célé pilgrims continue on either to the Notre-Dame de l'Assomption church at Grealou reaching the Lot River at Cajarc or follow the course of the River Cele to its confluence with the Lot, passing by the convent at Espagnac-Sainte-Eulalie.
