    Every Monday, the Caussade market attracts a large crowd, a reservoir of good regional cuisine with all the vegetables and fruit of Quercy, confits and foies gras in winter and of course, its famous wines from the Coteaux du Quercy and its truffles.

    For a short stroll, head for the Parc de la Lère, a place where you can relax, discover the fauna and flora and practice sports and leisure activities.
