Templar city of la Couvertoirade


The Templar city of La Couvertoirade stands in the middle of nature on the Larzac plateau in Aveyron. This medieval city represents an exceptional heritage built by the Templars and then the Hospitallers.

Visit the Templar city of La Couvertoirade during your camping holiday

Built in the 12th century, the city was erected by the Templars who wanted to create a stopover near the roads leading to the ports on the Mediterranean coast, where the crusaders embarked for the Holy Land. Surrounded by ramparts, the Templar city of la Couvertoirade is reminiscent of a miniature Carcassonne and has many period monuments. The 12th century Templar castle, narrow streets, fortifications, mill and church immerse visitors in a very medieval atmosphere. Stroll through the maze of streets lined with shops, mansions and typical Causse houses.
