“Fenestras” are windows in the city’s surround
Rodez city walls were gradually knocked down from the 18th century. The boulevard around Rodez old town looked more and more like it does today from the 19th century. That’s when the fenestras looking onto the surrounding area were built.
Locally they’re also called “squares”. Like windows, these vistas give you the chance to see the diversity of the surrounding Aveyron countryside.
