Medieval housing estate in Marcillac-Vallon in Aveyron
Located in the old center of the village of Marcillac-Vallon, this medieval building from the beginning of the 13th century was in turn a wine cellar in the Middle Ages or a residential building. It has been abandoned for several years.
Domain of the castle of Azas in Haute-Garonne
The estate was founded in 1612. Over the centuries, the property has been extended with magnificent outbuildings dating from the 18th century. The castle has beautiful gardens. Henry-François de Boutaric, parliamentarian, artist, member of the Academy of Sciences inherited the castle and built around 1780 the pavilion in the axis of the fishpond and an orangery which no longer exists.
Flamarens castle in the Gers
This castle is one of the finest representatives of Gascon seigniorial architecture. It has been open to the public since 1983 and has participated in Heritage Days since then.
Aulanac water mill in Saint-Cirq-Lapopie in the Lot
Attested as early as 1317, this mill has architectural witnesses dating from the 15th century. In 1927, three pairs of millstones were still working. In 1956, the water mill was transformed into a hydraulic flour mill, with the installation of “industrial” equipment and in particular an engine.
Church of Saint-Pierre de Sarniguet in the Hautes-Pyrénées
Sarniguet Church was built in the 18th century and is located in the rural village of Sarniguet crossed by the Adour. It is a symbol of architecture and religious art of the 18th and 19th centuries, particularly present in the Hautes-Pyrénées.

At the gates of Albi, this set of buildings (dungeon, mill, bridge, etc.) has been identified as of historical, archaeological and architectural interest by ABF 81 and DRAC Occitanie.

Church of Our Lady of the Assumption of Bouillac in the Tarn-et-Garonne
This church would have been built in the 12th century. Burned down and ruined during the wars of religion, it was rebuilt in 1632. The recent and rapid appearance of evolving pathologies jeopardizing the stability of the building led to the implementation of emergency works launched in 2022.
