We set off in the fog, but the sun soon came out, and we had a pleasant walk past some churches
with interesting sculptures to Figeac, where its old town has essentially retained its medieval character.
We stopped there for steak and chips before heading off to the railway station to find a train towards Rocamadour.
Figeac itself has some notable churches:
- The Saint-Sauveur church was part of the former abbey and was consecrated in 1092 during the reign of Abbot Hugh of Cluny.
- The Church of the Carmelites, located at the entrance to the city near the hospital, is the last visible remains of the former Carmelite monastery.
- The church of Notre-Dame du Puy is of Romanesque origin but now has the typical shape of the Carolingian basilica.
