Take a tour of French Village of La Couvertoirade in La Couvertoirade, France – part of the World’s Greatest Attractions travel video series by GeoBeats.
For an exemplar Medieval French village, turn to a commune in southern France.
La Couvertoirade is a small but well maintained town with approximately 200 hundred inhabitants, most of whom are members of craft trades.
The town is most famous for the presence of the Knights Templar here. It was the Templars who built the fortress of the town in the 12th and 13th centuries. They were later replaced by the Knights of Saint John, who built the wall in the 15th century.
The ancient stone and tile structures coupled with pristine landscapes and angelic sky help to create the wholly ethereal atmosphere of this archetypal town.
