A MIDDLE-AGE CASTLE
Perched on a rocky outcrop, built at the confluence of the Tarn and the Alrance, the fortified castle was built in the 9th century. After having belonged to the Counts of Rodez and to the Arpajon family, it was bought in 1839 by the municipality which transformed it into a presbytery.
From the Middle Ages, it has preserved its fortified enclosure, its rampart walk and its five defense towers.
