TOWN PRESENTATION

Picturesque medieval village classified among the "Most Beautiful Villages of France". Its narrow cobbled streets lead to many houses of character.


SIGHTSEEING

For the Gothic bridge spanning the Alrance, one enters the castle (XI - 16th century) built on its rocky peak in the counts of Rouergue and Toulouse at the confluence of the Tarn and Alrance. For nearly 500 years, the castle is owned by the wealthy family of Arpajon. Nearby, you can visit the chapel and the old cemetery, the church Saint-Jacques le Majeur with its fortified tower, the tomb of Loiseleur Longchamps in the cemetery of Saint-Cyrice and the church of St. Martin.
