Le site officiel du Tourisme en Aveyron

L'arbre à pain dans la première salle d'exposition, MAISON DE LA CHATAIGNE - Les Amis du Patrimoine Ayssenol



Maison de la Châtaigne/Musée des Arts Religieux

140 m² of exhibition with video room and interactive terminals for children. 40 m² of religious art. Sales of local products based on chestnuts.
Discover the "bread" tree and its fruit, the basic ingredient in bygone years for food in rural areas. You will follow all the cycles, from the maturity of the fruit to the final product, as well as the use of the wood. An exhibition of religious art in our campaigns before Vatican II, of which two chasubles are listed as Historic Monument, complete this site.
