It is when you get lost, in the middle of the lanes, the countryside and the green fields, that you make the most beautiful encounters: the old covered market halls and pigeon houses tell you the history of a whole country. In the Causses and Gorges de l'Aveyron, at the end of the paths, exploring the valleys, you will find real treasures which have the charm of a heritage that can be discovered off the beaten track.
At Cazals, you will find astonishing interlocking dolmens, and further on, overlooking the Bonnette valley, Notre-Dame des Grâces and the old Templar commandery at Lacapelle-Livron. At the bend in the road, you will find the Varen castle and its Romanesque chapel, not forgetting the Bosc cave which opens a passageway into the bowels of the Causse.
The one in Caylus was used as a model for many market halls in the area and its grain measures have been preserved. The market hall in Lacapelle-Livron still has its 16th century framework and a very beautiful roof made of lauze. The one in Saint-Antonin is the centre of the market, whose reputation is well established.
