Le Truffadou by train
Old railway, used for the transport of truffles to the Martel market (at 46 km from Les Teuillères), one of the most important truffle markets of France. This explains the name Truffadou (truffe = truffle in French).
The railway runs over the Mirandol cliffs and offers a tremendous view on the Dordogne. The genuine steam train has open coaches.
The Lot deparment is situated in the Midi-Pyrénées in South-East France.
The limestone plateaus (Causses) are cut through by large river gorges such as the Lot, the Dordogne or the Célé. The Causses contain many caves, some of which with parietal art, like the Pech Merle cave.
The parietal paintings, Celtic sepulchral monuments, medieval towns, monastries and castles are all evidences of a long human presence in the Lot.
Nowadays you can enjoy the beautiful nature, peace and space, visit the typical markets and fleemarkets, and taste the local products.
