Organise car hire in Cahors, a dramatic town which is the capital of the Lot department in France. The Valentré Bridge is the iconic symbol of the town of Cahors. Built over 7 years, from 138 onwards, the bridge comes with its own fully formed legends. The recent redevelopment by architect Paul Gout references this, with a cheeky statue of a devil pulling stones from the bridge. Visit our local branch for some help in hiring a car in Cahors, so that you can really make the most of this stunning Lot region.
A devilish idea
The Valentré Bridge's myth is part of its draw. The myth goes that since the bridge was taking so long to construct, the head builder made a deal with the devil, to help him build. To save his soul, he asked the devil to bring him water, but with a sieve - so his soul was saved. However, in revenge, the devil chipped a stone from the corner of the centre each night, causing it to be restarted each day. Hiring a car in Cahors allows you to explore the town to your heart's content, as well as journeying further - rent a car in Cahors and explore the Occitan region, or visit Villeneuve-sur-Lot, accessible in just over an hour's drive.
