    Dolmens Tour

    Dolmens Tour

    Give yourself an overview of the wealth and variety of the dolmens in Southern-Aveyron. This tour is essential during your holidays!

    With about 1,000 dolmens, Aveyron is the most populated department in France! Far ahead of Morbihan and its 550 Breton megaliths (including dolmens and menhirs).
    Another erroneous belief is that the dolmens were erected by the Celts. Not true! They were built by the Neolithic populations between the end of the 5th and the 3rd millennium BC.
    The dolmens, which in Breton means "stone table", would have served as collective burials for up to a hundred people.
    people. Curious to see them with your own eyes? Go on a "rock-trip" in the Roquefort region!

    Discover again the Great Sites in Occitania!

    Occitania is packed with outstanding sites such as picturesque villages, natural amphitheatres and Cathar castles… To make them known and bolster their tourist attractiveness, the regional council has included 39 sites into the Occitania Great Sites plan among which is Millau-Roquefort. This recognition provides the municipality of Roquefort with another opportunity to enhance heritage and boost the tourist reputation of the area while reconciling these with economic development of the cheese manufacturing industry.

    "Roquefort Demain" (Tomorrow Roquefort) is the name given to a large-scale project that should be indeed launched in the course of 2019: a redevelopment programme and an area dedicated to agropastoralism and to the Roquefort cheese production…

    Meanwhile, we offer you to discover the TV commercial of the Occitania Great Sites promotional campaign. So if you too wish to experience the time of your life in Occitania, see you there!
