Saint-Cirq-Lapopie, a Plus Beau Village, France

Saint-Cirq-Lapopie is one of the French Plus Beaux Villages and just off the Célé Valley route on the Camino de Santiago de Compostela (the Way). It sits on a cliff 300 feet above the river Lot and commands stunning views of the Lot Valley. There are shops, restaurants, cobbled streets, at least one museum and thirteen listed historic buildings . . . and steep hills to climb. The Château is in ruins but there are stairs and guard rails and the very best view is from the top. The tourist office is very helpful.
