Forteresse de Najac, Najac

(4.8/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
In the Gothic chapel at Forteresse de Najac, stumble across a secret corridor hidden within the walls, linking the Romanesque tower to the spot where you stand. After making your escape, find the last of the Knights Templar, who were imprisoned behind these walls. Also known as Château de Najac, this 13th-century royal fortress brings you closer to the first English occupation, the Albigensian Crusade, the Hundred Years' War, the peasants' revolts, and the French Revolution. From the castle’s exterior, imagine the archers of old aiming through the tall, thin archères, the largest of any castle in the world at a height of 6.8 m (22.3 ft).

  • A very pretty village. Stroll through the main street that leads to the fortress and you will reach a fortress which, although it was very damaged by its former owners who used it as a career (!), keeps an undeniable appeal and offers a beautiful view. I recommend you take this tour in the summer and with a guide who brings a definite plus.

  • I live 6 km to Najac, Aveyron very beautiful village, we can however regret the lack of shops and sad winter. Tourists favour so your vacation from June to August.
