    Aveyron Details

    Part of Aveyron on the ancient Massif Central is the very modern Micropolis, an interactive museum and theme park for insects. You can find this in Saint Léons, home to the famous etymologist, Jean Henry Fabre. There are also the pastel hued stone houses in Espalion with its 13th century stone bridge arching over the river. It may well take more than a weekend. Aveyron does have many small villages and several attractions. Rodez is a medieval French city. It sits high on a windy hill. The Notre Dame Cathedral is fortress-like. Its construction is of pink sandstone. The belltower is ornate and stands 285. Within, you can find 15th century choir stall covered with intricately carved creatures. You must also visit the Renaissance mansion, Maison dArmagnac and the local art museum.
