Discover Rodez

Perched on a hill 120 metres over the River Aveyron, Rodez is dominated by its splendid red sandstone cathedral. The town enjoys a panoramic view from the Monts d'Aubrac to the foothills of the Cévennes, and the steppe-like Causses to the green hills of the Ségala region.

Rodez has become a must-see destination, attracting visitors from all over the world, since the opening of the Soulages Museum, dedicated to the works of Rodez's wunderkind, the master of Beyond Black.


Monuments, private mansions, museums, ... Discover the highlights of the capital of the Aveyron.
