The small town, Gourdon, close to Rocamadour, is situated in the south west region of France. Gourdon has a rich prehistoric past, and a high concentration of prehistoric sites. Gourdon is the capital of the Bouriane, the natural region part of the Quercy, which extends up to the Dordogne River and neighbours the Périgord.
The town lies in the middle of the commune, above the right bank of the Bléou, a stream tributary of the Céou, which forms most of the commune's southern border.
