Tour de Saint Clair de Verdun

History

This is the year 1800 a "town hall" is established to administer the Quins territories of the lordships of Jalenques and Verdun. In Verdun as a Jalenques, there are only a few remains of ancient castles inhabited until the 15th century for the first and until 1812 for the second. Quins today is an agricultural town whose habitat is very dispersed. It has a rich built heritage with the remarkable Chapel of St. Clair Verdun but also the Chapel of two witnesses that are Lugan of Romanesque art in Segala. That of Verdun is without doubt one of the oldest of Aveyron (10 or 11th century).
