Millau, at the gates of the Gorges du Tarn and Larzac, a Town of Art and History ("Ville d’art et d’histoire" has many resources and treasures dating back to ancient Rome. Between its rich 200-year history and the activities it offers, which are firmly anchored in the present, it is a town that lacks neither charm nor dynamism!
A crossroads between the great Midi-Pyrenees region and the region of Languedoc Roussillon, Millau, which also ranks among the Grand Sites (Grandes Sites) is the second-largest town in the Department of Aveyron. Its industrial tradition dates from the Gallo-Roman era. Thereafter, the town became famous for its hide and glove industries. Artisan glovers still perpetuate this craftsmanship to this day, and their work can be admired in the various workshops of the town.
Must-sees include: the medieval buildings in Old Millau, the Church of Notre-Dame de l’Espinasse, the bell tower (the Tower of the Kings of Aragon or "tour des rois d'Aragon"), the ruins of the Old Bridge, the Ayrolle laundry, the museum located in a mansion house in the Pégayrolles area which houses a collection of palaeontological and archaeological artefacts as well as items from the tanning and glove-making industries, the market between the bell tower and the elegant Foch Square... and of course the famous Viaduct, the world's tallest cable-stayed bridge and an innovative, modern architectural structure that has given Millau an international reputation.
