Located at an altitude of 30 meters above the river Lot and founded in XIII century AD, the village has survived many wars and invasions. Richard the Lionheart tried to subdue the proud territory of Saint-Cirq Lapopie, but he failed. In fact, come here, you come to the open-air museum. The village is doing its best to keep out to her twenty-first century. Here, you will not see any satellite, or even television antennas, there are no neon lights or the usual posters.
