Villages in La Couvertoirade
La Couvertoirade
On the way back to Spain now and with the desire to be back safe and sound at home, however we decided to make a stop in a town called 'Brown' according to the sign. Without intending to discover one of the most charming villages of France. We left our caravan in a car park, which is what I would do if I were you so you as it costs 2 euros with no time limit. After a short walk we accessed through a door in the wall to the winding streets of the village. The Templars built a castle on a rocky outcrop at the base which has developed the medieval village today surrounded by the walls built by the Hospitallers in the 15th century. This town is about 81km northwest of Montpellier and Millau.

If you cross the North Gate and follow the steps which begin at the foot of the House Scipione, you'll come across the north tower square, which is very high and appears to have been a watchtower. It houses a permanent exhibition on local history. Following the path to the round tower, on the left, there are excellent views of the town and Droite Street.
