Market gourmets, a feast awaits you in Villefranche-de-Rouergue on Thursday mornings. Place Notre Dame, lined with arcades and merchants’ houses, is at the heart of the market. Wander the medieval streets admiring the colours, smells and tastes. Find a cafe and watch this busy meeting place come to life; in the cathedral porch you may spot nuns selling homemade cake.
