Villefranche-de-Rouergue Interesting : Michelin's recommendations

Bibendum

Lying on the border of the Rouergue and Quercy districts, the old bastide town of Villefranche was built in 1252 by Alphonse de Poitiers, Count of Toulouse. It is a picturesque spot, sited among verdant hills at the confluence of the River Aveyron and the River Alzou. On its main square is the 13C-15C Collegiate Church of Notre-Dame. Its chequer town plan and stone houses reflect its rich medieval past as a stop on the Compostela pilgrim trail.
