Belcastel, village and castle

The essential sites : Discover the sites that are a must-see during your stay in the Rignac area!

Listed as one of the Most Beautiful Villages in France (one of the greatest classifications in France for villages), Belcastel is one of the finest destinations of our department. Located in the banks of the river Aveyron , this thousand-years-old village managed to showcase its history and its heritage so well that it became one of the most beloved places of the region.

Belcastel is the witness of its own history which shaped the village throughout the centuries. Dominated by its eleventh century castle, restored with taste by Fernand Pouillon (a famous architect), the village invites you to travel through time, by taking the fifteenth century bridge which links the church (from the fifteenth century as well) to the village, its narrow streets (also called ''Calades'' ie coblestones), and so much more.

Belcastel is an experience which invites all of us to discover, to relax and to get away from the daily routine.
