Réalville, royal bastide

Historic site and monument, Walled town, Town / Village, Historic patrimony, 14th C in Réalville
  • The bastide of Réalville (Regalis villa = the royal city) was founded in 1310 by King Philippe IV le Bel and populated by the inhabitants of Almont, a village located on the hillsides and abandoned on this occasion.

    Nothing suggests the turbulent history of Réalville, a 14th century bastide with an arcaded square, lined with old brick or half-timbered houses.

    After the troubles of the Hundred Years War (siege of Réalville), the Wars of Religion lead to the destruction of the Abbey of Lagarde-Dieu in Mirabel and the looting of Cayrac and Réalville.
    As prosperity returned in the 17th and 18th centuries, dovecotes were erected in the countryside, mills along the Aveyron or the Lère and beautiful houses in the villages.

    Sweet and generous, this corner of land in the Tarn-et-Garonne provides all the fruits of summer: peaches, nectarines, strawberries, cherries, plums, the famous Mirabel melon, golden Chasselas. but also the confits and delicious foie gras that have made the reputation of his cuisine.
    Come and discover the production of distilled beers, the preparation of traditional fruit juices, the wines of Quercy and of course the local canners and prune producers.
