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.
