|Église Sainte-Catherine was built in the 19th century.|
Perhaps the biggest surprise we come across is the beautiful Église Sainte-Catherine: surprising because visiting churches isn't exactly our favorite pastime, but we are drawn to the Byzantine-Romanesque architecture and the red bricks (rarely seen around here). The church was built in the 19th century, so it's practically a baby, but it has 15th- and 16th-century stained-glass windows to balance out that new-church smell.
|The lovely Lot riviére in Villeneuve-sur-Lot|
True to its name, Villeneuve-sur-Lot straddles the Lot River. Although we are some months away from water-sport season, several boat-rental outlets clue us in that this part of the river is a recreational hub. We make a note to return this summer with towels, sunscreen, fishing gear, and flip-flops.
