L'm not really sure you can drive near the top. That looked closed/not a player during our visit today. It is a steep climb and there are two routes. If you take the one that also appears to allow some traffic note that it does...More

This is a not insignificant basilica commanding the most amazing views over the Lot valley. You can see for miles in all directions. See also the grotto and the castle keep ruins built by the crusaders, Richard I I think but don't quote me.
