La Tour des Landes, located in Aveyron, dependence in XIII century of Commandery of Knights Templar of Capelle-Livron near Cahors, was placed in 1351 by the Hospitaliers under the supervision of Commandery of Espalion much closer.

 

For more than 4 centuries, it served as residence to a Commander responsible for managing the property surrounding the Landes. For this reason, it is commonly called

Tour du Commandeur.

At the Revolution, the Landes domain was sold by the state and the Tour became a private residence.

 

Among the 5 levels involved, there is a monumental fireplace, dated XIV century, a roman oratory, a guard room and a vaulted cellar.
