Photographer's Note

Castelnau de Montmiral is a medieval city, proudly overlooking the valley. Going in there, you will discover an unassailable stronghold hiding a village classified among “ Les plus beaux de France". Its charming façades, arched square, pillory and rich heritage attest of its long history.


Formerly a stronghold watch, Castelnau de Montmiral is today a haven of peace, with its car-free central square, so quiet and enjoyable for everyone. A rich medieval city with, among others, the church Notre Dame de l’Assomption and its religious goldsmith treasure : the cross-shaped reliquary of the Comtes d’Armagnac. A historical marker in itself, such a significant civil and religious part did it play for the city.
