Belcastel - Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Aveyron

Nestling at the heart of the Aveyron Valley, the superb village of Belcastel, listed among the most beautiful villages of France, looks like something from a picture postcard, with its stone houses and their thackstone roofs, old bridge reflected in the peaceful water of the river, and the imposing form of its medieval castle standing next to a square keep. You can also enjoy a lovely walk along on the banks of the Aveyron and long the charming paved side streets!

Dating from the 15th century, the village church located on the left bank contains the tomb of Alzias de Saunhac, lord of Belcastel.
