  • Visit the castle of Estaing which is located in one of the most beautiful villages of France, is to look back on the history of one of the most powerful families of Rouergue and enjoy the eventful story of a castle remodelled in time. But it is also and especially, enter a private home, that of the former President of the Republic, Valéry Giscard d'Estaing, to whom belongs this castle today which will give you the opportunity to get back in the years of the seven-year term of former President. At the start of your visit, a panel with a welcome message from the former President writes of his hand and in several rooms of the Castle, an exhibition that retraces the major social and political years events Giscard. Exhibition in the form of panels to read and videos to watch. This combination of media avoids the monotony of the visit and allows all visitors to enjoy. In one of the rooms, you'll find a few tables of illustrious figures of the d'Estaing family and a family tree painted on the wall of this illustrious family. Do not expect to find a castle furnished and decorated except in the room serving kitchen where you will see a few objects and furniture. On the other hand, you can enjoy the exteriors of the Castle and including a passageway to better understand the architecture of the Castle and offering a nice view of the village. One of the highlights of the tour is without a doubt the panoramic views of the village, the batch passing to d'Estaing and especially the Gothic bridge built in 1490 by the inhabitants themselves, on the list of monuments since 2005. On the bridge, a statue of François d'Estaing, Bishop of Rodez executed in 1866 by François Mahoux and the famous wrought iron cross of d'Estaing which served as model for the jewelry made by the jeweler Henri Lesieur. A good time to spend expected you d'Estaing.
