Pop: 2,000
St Geniez d'Olt is the 18th century jewel of Rouergue. The town, spreading on both banks of the Lot, still radiates from its past splendour and prosperity. It was especially active in the 18th century with its tanneries, its nail factories and its linen manufactures exporting as far as America. With nearly 5,000 inhabitants, St Geniez was the second largest town in Rouergue. The Revolution stopped the trend and a long decline started, increased by competition from other more modern textile areas. The architectural wealth of the town is striking with its large squares, churches and large townhouses built by the rich merchants of its golden age. Among the most remarkable monuments feature the Augustine convent and chapel, the church, the hospice, the Ravieux and Ricard mansions. A statue on the old bridge evokes the tales of the marmot according to which to local children were saved from a flood by the animal. St Geniez is also famous for its strawberries. They replaced the vines after the disease that killed nearly all of the vines in the region in 1860.
