Villeneuve-sur-Lot is in the Lot et Garonne department of south-west France, about 30 kilometres north of Agen. The ancient bastide town of Villeneuve-sur-Lot has now largely given way to a much larger town that surrounds it.
The centre of the town is now largely given over to shops (real shops not tourist shops) and makes a pleasant place to explore. Walk down the Rue de Paris - the main street between the two towers and the main shopping street of Villeneuve-sur-Lot - and on to the Place Lafayette. Place Lafayette is the main square of Villeneuve and is surrounded by arcaded shops.
The market is held here on Tuesday and Saturday mornings. This takes place in the Covered Market Hall just down from the Place Lafayette on the river. The market hall was built in 1864 of iron, cast iron and stone in a similar style to those of Paris.
There are some interesting features to discover in the town, which is also noteworthy in the way it has escaped the excesses of tourism that have impacted the less developed bastide towns.
Other points of interest in the town are the Gajac Mill which has been converted into the Art Museum of Villeneuve-sur-Lot; the Saint Cyr Hospital, a beautiful building donated to the town and which still has its original 19th century pharmacy with 500 decorated porcelain pots, and the Gallo-Roman ruins at Eysses to the north of Villeneuve.
A visit to the Villeneuve-sur-Lot tourist office (near the Tour de Paris) will provide you with a detailed map highlighting all these places of interest.
