Entre la vallée du Lot et l'Aubrac, Calmont d'Olt, (c) nicomphoto



Château de Calmont d'Olt

Perched above the town of Espalion, the castle of Calmont d'Olt is a historic monument which dominates the Lot valley. Daily shows and live demonstrations with siege machines everyday during the summer holidays.
A fortified castle is the perfect example of Middle Age defenses. Guided and unguided tours on the theme of war in the Middle Ages. Live shooting of the trebuchet and cannons along with shooting of long-bows and cross-bows. Children are given knights' certificates at the end of the "Discovery Game". An exceptional view of Espalion and the Aubrac from the top of the keep which houses an archaeological exhibition.
