Aveyron is a rural and preserved department. It is a favorite site for lovers of large natural spaces. Nature photographers will appreciate the landscapes of Rouergue, the Monts de l'Aubrac, the Causse du Bas-Quercy, and the beautiful Lot Valley... Lovers of architectural photography are not left out either. Between Millau, Rodez and the Templar commanderies, there is enough to satisfy them. Let's go for a nature photo report on the lands of Aveyron.

The Aveyron Gorges

The Gorges l'Aveyron extend over three departments: Aveyron, Tarn and Tarn-et-Garonne. Even if the gorges are very popular with tourists, a trip on the water in a canoe will allow you to discover still wild corners. You will see very beautiful villages, perched on the cliffs.

The Tarn Gorges

The Gorges du Tarn form a canyon of impressive size, between Lozère and Aveyron. Each rocky promontory will offer you breathtaking panoramas. If you are a good sports photographer, you will probably take extraordinary photos, of canyoning, rafting or via ferrata... On the plateaus, there are beautiful walks to do on the forest paths. The local fauna and flora are available to you for exceptional nature photos.

The stone city of Montpellier-le-Vieux

The stone city of Montpellier-le-Vieux is a rocky chaos of the Causse Noir. It is even the greatest chaos in the world. It is an enigmatic site, where your creativity can express itself through your camera. According to the view angel, the stones of strange and unusual shapes! It's up to you to listen to your imagination...

The Gorges of the Jonte

The Gorges de la Jonte form the border between Aveyron and Lozère. They are protected because they are home to many vulture nesting sites. It is a privileged place to observe them and take beautiful photos of the birds of prey. It is a paradise for ornithologist photographers but also for climbing enthusiasts!

The Moulin de Corp in the Dourbie Gorges

The Gorges de la Dourbie were formed by the river Dourbie, between the Causse Noir and the Causse du Larzac. They are absolutely beautiful and much less frequented than those of Tarn or Aveyron. At the heart of this preserved natural environment, the charming Moulin de Corp is a beautiful stone building from the 19th century. A bridge spans the Dourbie. The whole is bucolic and well worth a photo.

The waterfall of Creissels

The Cascade de Creissels is a magnificent natural site not far from Millau. The most pleasant way to take photos of this natural space is the “Sentier des Cascades”, accessible from the village of Creissels (1.5km). On site, you also have a beautiful view of the Millau's town. This is the ideal place to learn about water effects!

The medieval historic center of Millau

Millau is an old medieval city, which stretches along the banks of the Tarn. It has been classified as a "City of Art and History" for its remarkable heritage, particularly in the heart of its historic center. Some medieval houses are particularly amazing. The fresco of the Notre-Dame de l'Espinasse church and the belfry also offer you pretty subjects for photos.

Millau Viaduct

How can we talk about Millau without mentioning its spectacular viaduct? It is a modern work of art and an exceptional work of engineering. This cable-stayed bridge fits surprisingly into this natural and mineral environment of causses and gorges. A photo of the Millau Viaduct is therefore one of the essentials in a souvenir album of your holidays in Aveyron.

The Templar Commandery of La Couvertoirade

The Templar Commandery of La Couvertoirade was built in the 12th century on the Causse du Larzac. It had the interest of protecting the fruits of the very fertile agricultural lands of the Causse, during the troubled period of the 100 Years War. The medieval heritage of La Couvertoirade has been particularly well preserved, which has earned it its classification as one of "the most beautiful villages in France". Lovers of old stones will enjoy themselves!
