Located in the south of the Aveyron department, the Château de Coupiac proudly stands out in the heart of the village. Built during the Middle Ages, it has two T-shaped wings, set directly on the bare rock and flanked by three powerful round towers. The remaining towers show architectural differences that are evidence of construction over a fairly long period of time. With its flamboyant Gothic style, this castle impresses above all by its size and height as well as by the number of its machicolations and loopholes. In addition, it has beautiful windows, especially on the second floor.
Visits all year round...
The Château de Coupiac welcomes you all year round. During an open house visit, you will cross about fifteen rooms furnished with explanatory panels on the history of the castle, its architecture and daily life in the Middle Ages.
