Intact mediaeval village
One enters Villeneuve
through one of the four tower gateways, two of which have remained intact. Strolling through the narrow streets you will appreciate the typical bastide architecture
and regular street plan. You will inevitably come to the central square, la place des Conques
. This is where time stands still and one admires the Renaissance and middle age houses with their rib vaulted arcades. Perhaps you will be surprised by the architecture of Saint-Sépulcre church
: in fact, in the 14th century, the apse of the Romanesque building was destroyed to build a far more luminous Gothic nave.
