Things to see and do

Castle of Aujac and hamlet of Cheylard (XIIth century):

Perched 600 meters above sea level, at the crossroads of the present departments of Gard, Lozère and Ardeche, from the top of its promontory, it is the last intact representative of a network of fortifications on an already existing route in the Middle Age, mentioned as early as 1270 as Val Cezarencha.

Square tower, round tower, drawbridge, this castle illustrates the castral evolution from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance. Under the protection of its ramparts, a medieval fortified village settles with farm, dovecote, sheepfold, chapel, chapel.

Site registered historical monument, the simultaneous safeguarding of the castle and its castral village ensures homogeneity to this magnificent architectural ensemble and constitutes a rare example of conservation. Inhabited from the Middle Ages until today, it is the object of scientific research and restoration.
