Master tanners and furriers made the town's fortune during the 13th century and its tradition of craft industries is still firmly established. In the 13th century the larger of two canals running through the town and fed by the small river Bonnette (a tributary of the Aveyron) was built. Le Canal du Bessarel (Above, Right and Below) serviced a water-mill and other industries such as the 14th century tannery visible in the picture below. The towering white cliffs of Anglars Rock, which overshadows the Aveyron river and town, is seen in the background.
