Discover Coupiac castle !
In the heart of the Languedoc-Roussillon-Midi-Pyrénées region, within the Grands Causses Natural Regional Park, near the Tarn valley, in the south of the Aveyron département, the village of Coupiac is dominated by its medieval castle, a former possession of the Counts of Rodez and Toulouse.
Visit its numerous furnished rooms to discover its history and well-preserved Gothic architecture. Guided by illustrated information panels and permanent exhibitions, you will learn about daily life in the middle ages in a historical monument dating from the 15th century.
For families, medieval costumes and a treasure hunt allow children to have fun while exploring the fortress: at the end of the visit they will become a knight or princess of the castle.
During the summer season there are activities explaining different aspects of medieval life – cuisine, calligraphy and games – and an evening show set at the time of the French Revolution. During the Easter and autumn school holidays there are treasure hunts for families and throughout the spring, summer and early autumn, temporary exhibitions on a wide variety of themes: contemporary art, heritage, history…
Guided visits for groups of adults, school pupils and holiday centres are available throughout the year with prior booking and may be accompanied by workshops on medieval themes, not forgetting our souvenir shop specialising in the medieval period. Groups of walkers will appreciate our programme specially adapted for them, combining way-marked paths, a picnic and a guided visit of the castle.
