The royal fortress of Najac
Royal fortress, it was constructed in 1253 by Alphonse de Poitiers. Its castle was built with the highest technology of the time and thus had the reputation of being invincible.
In 1271, Najac and the county of Toulouse were attached to the Crown. The city knew then and throughout the Middle Ages an economic prosperity. Pilgrims flocked there… Then epidemics and the revolution impoverished the village and the castle narrowly escaped destruction.
Today labeled “the most beautiful villages in France” and part of the “Pays d’Art et d’Histoire” of the Bastides du Rouergue, this village is a marvel both architecturally and landscape-wise.
Don’t miss the guided tour of the castle but for that you will have to walk through the village, this long and steep alley built on a rocky bar overlooking the Aveyron.
