Cahors is known for a certain art of living whose legend was forged around its emblematic product: the wine of Cahors. The city, nestled in a loop of the Lot, is separated in two by a north-south axis, materialized by the boulevard Gambetta. The old town is bounded on the west by this major artery, and on the east and south by the Lot. Although the agglomeration has burst the limits of the old city, it is little industrialized, living essentially from trade and its famous vineyard. Cahors takes its name from the Gallic people of Cadourques, who worshipped at the fountain dedicated to the goddess Divona.
