Quercy Causse above Vayrac

The Quercy is the pre-Revolutionary name for the Lot and the northern section of the Tarn-et-Garonne Départements. Bordered by the Départements of the Dordogne, Corrèze, Cantal and the southern part of the Tarn-et-Garonne, the Quercy has lots of fascinating places to visit.

The Quercy itself is divided into two parts - the Haut-Quercy in the North and the Bas-Quercy or, as it is sometimes known, Quercy Blanc due to its white limestone buildings, in the south stretching down to Montauban on the border with Languedoc.

Haut Quercy

The Haut Quercy consists of four limestone plateaux on the western edge of the Massif Central locally called causses’ which is an Occitan word. They are all between 700 and 1200 metres high, cut through by rivers like the Lot and Célé and replete with forested gorges and caves. The three main Causses are Martel, Gramat and Limogne.
