Gourdon, offers magnificent panoramic views of a spectacular surrounding. It sits on the edge of a rocky spur that juts out about 500m(1640 feet) directly above the Loup River where the Gorges du Loup comes out at the Pont-du-Loup village. There is only one entrance, from which you can access the main street. In former times, it was defended by a simple and harmonious Roman gate that has been demolished at the beginning of the century. The castle is one of Gourdon's most important features. The village is full of little boutiques with perfume products, a glass blower who creates intricate masterpieces. The view from the edge of the village is worth the time spent to reach the site. Put Gourdon and other Gourdon attractions into our Gourdon vacation generator, and watch your holiday take shape.

From the top of the small square will open views of the surrounding countryside and the nearby sea. Sometimes, of course, is a view of the misty haze tainted. In Guordonu you can buy a variety of souvenirs, regional products and food, and also a good lunch.
