Lauzerte, a few kimometres to the south, sits high on a hill, and is well known for its square with the turned up paving stone sculpture in the corner.
The countryside is a veritable cornucopia of food production with soft fruit orchard, nut trees and groves, vegetables, melons all being grown beside the general arable crops and livestock.
