Conques

This tiny and beautiful village set upon steep slopes is surrounded by untainted nature.

Conques is a commune in the Aveyron department in southern France, in the Midi-Pyrenees region. The village is located at the confluence of the Dourdou de Conques and Ouche rivers. It is built on a hillside and has classic narrow Medieval streets. As a result, large vehicles (such as buses) cannot enter the historic town center but must park outside. The St. Foy abbey-church was added to the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in 1998. Its Romanesque architecture, albeit somewhat updated in places, is displayed in periodic self-guided tour opportunities, especially of the upper level, some of which occur at night with live music and appropriately-adjusted light levels.
