This hilltop town looks out over the River Aveyron which coils below. Lose yourself in the steep, picturesque streets and admire the imposing ramparts and impressive surroundings. With cobblestones, lavender fields and the sounds of the cicadas, this town – whose name in Occitan is Rodés – looks proudly to the future and blends the preservation of its heritage with the modernisation and diversification of its cultural activities.
Its citizens are referred to as Ruthénois, after the Gallic tribe that founded the city more than two thousand years ago, which speaks volumes about the town's rich history. The former rival areas of Bourg, which was ruled by the local counts, and the Cité, controlled by the bishops, tell the story of the village in the Middle Ages. Some of the bourgeois buildings date from the 15th century, whilst the majestic Notre Dame Cathedral was built and then rebuilt between the 13th and 16th centuries. After the two areas united in the wake of the Hundred Years' War, the town prospered thanks to its markets. Today, the urban area of Grand Rodez includes eight communes including the charmingly named Luc-la-Primaude, Sébazac-Concourès and Onet-le-Château. Discover Rodez' town centre, the nearby villages and the surrounding countryside as the mood takes you!
