Rodez The Essential
Recommended
A hillock 120m above the Aveyron riverbed, one of the prettiest views over the region, from the dry plateaux of the Causses to the humid hills of the Ségala, a superb Gothic red sandstone cathedral, lively old streets... all that is indeed Rodez. But it is also the city of Pierre Soulages and home to the world's largest collection of works by the master of black, which can be admired in the new museum, Musée Soulages. Rodez is a real must-see, and attracts visitors from all over the world.
