Located in the southwest of France, Aveyron is a natural and tourist department of the region called « Occitanie » where there are plenty of historical monuments to visit. The attractive city of Villefranche de Rouergue, along the shores of the Aveyron’s river, has a rich historical heritage and is well known for its markets full of regional products. On a rocky edge, the town of Najac extends all the way of a unique road leading to the famous castle of Najac. In Rodez there is the Soulage’s museum and a historical and commercial centre. Drive on the famous Millau’s Overpass (Viaduc de Millau) above the Tarn’s river. Come to discover Conques, a beautiful city which, thanks to its Romanic abbey church sheltering medieval goldsmith and modern stained-glass windows, is classified as world heritage by UNESCO. You will love to wander in the town of Figeac en Quercy while admiring nice houses and visiting Champollion’s museum.
