La Clef des Vignes


A town offering plenty of surprises: palaces by the dozen!

From the Middle Ages to the Renaissance period, discover the ornately-decorated private houses as you stroll around the streets of Figeac.

And there are plenty of them! It will be love at first sight at the Place Champillion which is surrounded by period houses such as Griffon house decorated with 12th century sculptured, scowling heads.

The original guided tour of Figeac is based on the 5 senses: seeing, of course, touching the sculptures, listening to the noise of the fountains, smelling the leather at a craftsman’s workshop.

And for taste, try the apple and spices tart – a recipe from the Middle Ages.
