Member of the Association of the most beautiful villages of France, Capdenac takes place in the Lot. At four kilometers from Figeac, the town lies on the right bank of the Lot, on the edge of the Aveyron department. Also called Capdenac-le-Haut, it dominates one hundred meters the river.
Important archaeological site of the Neolithic, Capdenac occupied since that distant time. A rich architectural heritage still be seen today in the history of the village, which hosted in its time, after the death of Henri IV, the famous Sully.
Walking through the medieval streets, let yourself be transported to another era, admiring the old buildings and the remains of a blessed time. Nearby, the landscapes of the Lot valley leave no indifferent either.
Capdenac owes its integration into the Most Beautiful Villages of France, its unique architectural heritage and its special atmosphere.
In the middle of alleys of medieval aspect, visitors discover with happiness vestiges of old times, like the keep with watchtowers from the 14th century. Listed as an historic monument, it houses the village Tourist Office, terraces offering magnificent panoramas, as well as exhibitions on archaeological objects found on site. We can especially appreciate vestiges of the Roman era, models or explanations of life at that time. Not far away, a garden of the five senses, of medieval inspiration, has been reconstituted.
Under the ramparts and the fortified gates, also in the Historic Monuments, the Gallic fountain and the Caesar fountain, a fortified troglodyte fountain, still stand proudly. In the old center, it is possible to admire an old 14th century guard house, or the statue of a magnificent Chassean goddess.
Still at Historic Monuments, don't miss the 17th century monolithic cross. The church of Saint-Jean-Baptiste, from the 18th century, is not lacking in interest either.
A marked and very informative hiking trail of nine kilometers, the route of which is offered at the Tourist Office, allows you to explore all this exceptional heritage.
