Located at the limit of the Aveyron and Lozère at the entrance of the Gorges du Tarn and Jonte, the commune of Mostuéjouls is associated with the Regional Natural Park of Causses and recently at UNESCO heritage. Dive Into Middle Age by discovering the two medieval villages and Liaucous Mostuéjouls, with their beautiful cobbled streets and homes tangled...

On the right bank of the Tarn, and a little above Boyne rises amphitheater village which takes its name from the Latin Monte Jacere, as suggested by its position on a mound.

Both villages Mostuéjouls Liaucous and are located on the side of the Causse Sauveterre and overlooking the valley of the Tarn gorges. You will dive in the heart of the Middle Ages and discover their homes entangled, strolling in their cobbled streets and narrow alleys, winding, paved with pebbles polished by rubbing sledges once used to transport...

What is striking is the ancient castle of the place, built in the eleventh century, which was several times altered by the family of Mostuéjouls, whose cradle was the original cave castle of Saint-Marcellin. Its long façade, square, elegant towers, all slathered in white, is seen from far away on the back of a green avenue of elms and magnificent plane trees.
