The Cacor Canal-Bridge
The Cacor canal bridge is an architectural marvel that allows the canal to span the Tarn. At 356 meters long, carried by 15 arches, the canal bridge is one of the longest canal bridges in France. It was built in 1867 out of Toulouse brick and white stones from Quercy. Located in the south-west of Moissac, it has taken the name of the neighbouring quarter: Cacor.
Due to the technical prowess of its time, the bridge canal resisted the violent flooding of the Tarn in 1930. At the same time the railway bridge succumbed to the raging current. The railway was thus redirected over the canal bridge for two years.
Visit the beautiful cathedral and look at the sculpture there and in its famous cloister. Its galleries are bordered by columns with sumptuously sculpted capitals, which can also be found throughout the chapter house, the St. Marthe and St. Ferréol chapels, the scriptorium and the warming house (chauffoir), today converted into exposition spaces. In this place of passage and meditation, you can visit in contemplation, read the stories of the capitals, admire the corner pillars and discover the principles of the monastic life.

Located in the Lot-et-Garonne department of south-west France, Bonaguil was the last of the great fortified castles to be constructed in France. It is built in an impressive location on a high rocky spur between two rivers (the Th�ze and the L�mance). Hence the name of the castle, which comes from the French 'bonne aiguille' - good needle.
