Larroque-Toirac is a commune in the Lot department in south-western France.

Overlooked by a medieval castle, the village lies halfway between Figeac and Cajarc in the valley of the Lot River.

The castle (Château de Larroque-Toirac) was built in the 12th century and improved over the following 300 years. It is now a popular tourist attraction.
