The Dordogne River flows through the limestone plateaux or Causses of Quercy, in the Lot, before it reaches the Department which bears its name. The landscape is dramatic, chateaux tower on cliffs, the chasm or Gouffre of Padirac offers spectacular caves and an underground river to explore, and one highlight of the trip is the 9th Century pilgrimage site of Rocamadour, clinging to the side of a deeply-cleft gorge. The Dordogne was frequently the frontier between the English and French armies during the 100 years War and there are many picturesque bastides or fortified villages dating from the 13th century. The route broadly follows the Dordogne valley Westwards, sometimes beside the water, sometimes along the edge of the scarp with dramatic views of the river undulating lazily below.
