Here we found the most amazing 13th Century church that was undergoing a massive renovation effort. Upon walking through the town we stumbled upon a much smaller derelict church from the 12th century that had many similarities – it appeared to be the forerunner of that currently in use.
It was in Bouzies (you will find this town slightly to the NE of Cahors on the map above) that we came upon the Chateau des Anglais, a structure from the 11th or 12th century, which was built into the cliff’s limestone walls. These were shelters used for protecting the people should there be an attack.
