Perched on a hill just south of Villeneuve-sur-Lot, Pujols has lovely far-reaching views over Villeneuve-sur-Lot, the valley of the Lot, and away into the distance. Then cross to the other side of the street for almost equally far reaching views towards the south.
Occupied since prehistoric times, and later by the romans, Pujols retains its medieval heart, with numerous colombage houses along the main street, almost completely intact. There is a small central square next to the large fortified gate, by which the town is usually entered.
There is a market in Pujols on a Sunday morning.
A perfect little jewel, Pujols is classified as a 'Historic Monument' and, dare I say it, 'one of the most beautiful villages in France'. We do have more than our fair share of these around here... Pujols is another of the villages in this area situated on one of the routes of Saint-Jacques de Compostelle ( the camino).
In the little village you will find also a cafe or two and a couple of fine restaurants - we especially enjoyed eating at the Smerelda restaurant.
Penne d'Agenais and Tournon d'Agenais are near to Pujols, and very attractive small towns. Penne especially is yet another 'must-see' town.
