Circuit that takes you from the fortified village of Flaugnac to the opposite side, discovering viewpoints over two valleys while walking through a small and varied heritage.

Flaugnac, perched on a promontory offering a natural defence, is one of these castle towns built in the XNUMXth century. At the time, it looked like a fort – the castrum – surrounded by walls and cut off from the rest of the village by a drawbridge. Inside the castrum, was the stately home and the noble houses ensuring the protection of the town. But the Hundred Years War and then the wars of religion got the better of this fine organization.
