CHATEAU DE BELCASTEL - ANIMAZING MONDE D'ILLUSTRATION
Visit a mediaeval château and art gallery: new temporary exhibitions.
Built a thousand years ago on a gigantic rock, this magnificent fortress rises above one of the most beautiful villages in the Aveyron region of France. A self-guided tour, rich with historical information, leads visitors over the moat and throughout the castle and its grounds. This private chateau, with its lush courtyards, medieval chapels, prison and superb views, is open to the public. Fernand Pouillon, (1912-1986), architect, visionary and award-winning author and Officer of the Légion d'Honneur, devoted himself completely to the restoration of Château Belcastel after he discovered it in ruins in 1973. Now, what was once the private residence of Fernand Bouillon offers itself as an architectural gem, a historical landmark and host to a collection of unique art galleries.
