Saint Nicolas de la Grave - an ancient bastide town

Set in a dominant position gazing out over the stunning countryside of the Tarn et Garonne, St Nicolas de la Grave has much to offer.

About town

The town is well equipped with shops, services and leisure facilities. You can find shops selling all your daily needs, and there's a very attractive old style street market held in the main square every Monday morning. The region is known as one of the great gastronomic areas of France, and there is no better place to buy the local produce than fresh from a farmer's market stall.

Heritage of Saint Nicolas de la Grave

The ancient bastide town of St Nicolas de la Grave has masses of history and plenty of heritage to discover. Probably its most outstanding feature is its imposing brick built chateau.

In fact, the East Wing of the castle, built by Richard, is often known as The English Tower in his honour. Further buildings worthy of note include churches and chapels and the traditional market hall.

Visit the town's Cadillac Museum

And, for something completely different, there's the Cadillac Museum. Quite an unexpected feature in an old rural French town, this museum is dedicated to the explorer and founder of Detroit, Antoine de la Mothe-Cadillac. A great day out for the car lovers of this life!
