The village Castelbouc has a lot of cave dwellings. It is located on the left bank of the Tarn. The houses are attached at the top of the rocky outcrop. You also can see there the ruins of the medieval castle of Castelbouc, destroyed in 1592 by order of the states of Gevaudan, so that it can not serve as a refuge for the Protestants during the religious wars. A legend is connected to the castle. During the time of the Crusades, all men were gone, except the lord of Castelbouc. Legend has it that he should satisfy all the village women, in need of man, and he died of exhaustion. At night, his ghost-shaped goat (names bout in French) flies over the castle. This gave the name to the place.
