Saint-Jean-du-Bruel - Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Aveyron

Between the Cevennes and Causses, Saint-Jean du Bruel, located in a green valley at an altitude of 520 m, is crossed by one of the most beautiful rivers in France: "the Doubs".

Historically, this town, formerly a Protestant, had suffered badly the Wars of Religion. Converted to Catholicism after the revocation of the Edict of Nantes, the church was rebuilt in 1710, but the village retains its temple.

Saint-Jean-du-Bruel canning houses three blocks, enough to satisfy lovers of local produce!
