Between Sarlat and Les Eyzies in the valley of the River Beune, is the fascinating Château de Commarque originating from the 12th century. It stands at the crossroads of two important routes - one from Brive to Bergerac and one from Perigeux to Cahors. The castle was abandoned and completely covered in brambles until it was 'rediscovered' in the 1970s. ~ And my friend Lucia.
Lucia is both a feminine given name and a surname. It comes from the Latin word Lux meaning 'light'. It is the feminine form of the Roman praenomen Lucius.
