St Antonin and the local region
St Antonin Noble Val is the oldest town in the Rouergue and Quercy region and its name is derived from Saint Antonin, who introduced Christianity to the area. It is a picturesque medieval town, whose museum is housed in the oldest example of civic architecture in France, a town hall built in 1125.
Artists have flocked to in St Antonin-Noble-Val: painters, sculptors, potters, jewellers, soap-makers. The art deco cinema offers an up-to-date programme of films in English as well as French; there are exhibitions, concerts, festivals, dances, live groups; the night markets, the renowned Sunday market and antique markets are well-attended.
There are also restaurants and cafes to suit all tastes and budgets. We are happy to recommend and book restauramts in the town and in the surrounding area.
