A village with an exceptional air
Saint-Côme d’Olt nestles in a hollow in the Lot valley. Its almost circular tour de ville (circular street surrounding the village centre) and its ramparts, that have become the façades of the houses, give Saint-Côme d’Olt an exceptional appearance.
The heart of the village has kept its mediaeval character with its three fortified entrance gateways and its alleyways. Here you will find the manor of the Sires de Calmont built in the 12th century that boasts two imposing 14th century towers but also two monuments listed as historic monuments: the château de Castelnau, dating from the 13th century and today housing the Mairie as well as the Chapelle des Pénitents, formerly a hospice for pilgrims and now an exhibition room.
