Aumont-Aubrac - Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Lozère

Peyre in Aubrac is the name of the new commune comprising Aumont-Aubrac, La Chaze-de-Peyre, Saint-Sauveur-de-Peyre, Sainte-Colombe-de-Peyre, Javols and Le Fau-de-Peyre. It is located northwest of the department of Lozère, on the borders of the picturesque granite mountains of the Margeride and the immense basaltic plateaus of Aubrac.

The origins of Aumont-Aubrac are obscure. According to the first known documents, the village already existed about the year 1000 and was formed around a priory founded by the barons of Peyre. In the Middle Ages, the village stretched from the church to the present town hall. The modern city developed along the RN9.

In August 2002, Aumont-Aubrac was the 12th village of France to obtain the label "Village stage" and the 2nd on the A75 after Massiac.
