Province : Tarn & Garonne - Les causses du Quercy Garonne

  • English
    • This magnificent village is a medieval jewel, hanging on a colossal rocky outcrop, in the middle of unspoiled and breathtaking nature! Go to the assault of this borough, starred with the rosary of the "Most beautiful villages of France".

      The Château de Brunehilde (Le Château Vieu), Visigoth princess, Queen of the Franks in 587, hangs and stands proudly on the cliff overlooking the Aveyron. Prehistoric remains have been found in La Grotte de Bruniquel and at the foot of the village (47,600-year-old bear bones, female skeleton from the Magdalenian period) ... If the excavation shelters cannot be visited, you can find on the other hand, some of these objects exhibited at the Musée des Châteaux.

      The beauty of Bruniquel lies in the magnificent facades of medieval houses, which you will be delighted to observe as you stroll through the picturesque alleys. Don't miss the Maison Belaygue, the Maison Le Parlement, the Maison aux Rings de Fer and the Forges de Caussanus. In the rue Bombe-Cul (you will understand why it is so named after having climbed the stairs) there are many craftsmen. The beautiful cobbled streets invite you to relax, visit the village (with sneakers!) In the morning or at sunset, to appreciate the lush vegetation and the play of light.

      Anecdote: Why are there two castles in Bruniquel? It is a quarrel between father and son in 1461 which generates the construction of a separation wall around the Old Castle. In the 16th century, a new castle was erected on the remaining part. In 1780 after other quarrels, especially religious ones, the separation wall was abolished and the owner of the new complex symbolized reunification with two twin towers. In 1987, the castles were bought by the municipality. They visit each other and sometimes host festivals, such as the Festival Lyrique des Châteaux.
