  • Closest to the bastide: the parking lots present on the Avenues Aristide Briand or Languedoc walk are the closest to the center because they are directly located on the city tour, and in number! You can park all around the city, parking may however be limited (blue zones).
  • Nearby : the large Ruelles and Serres car parks as well as the Place Fontanges are ideal because they offer choice and are free, with no time limit. They are to be preferred on Thursday (market day).

Our tips for parking in Najac

  • Closest to the fortress: the closest will be the car park located on the forecourt of Saint John's Church but few places are available… You will have to arrive early to have a chance (Access strictly forbidden to long vehicles such as motorhomes)
  • To discover the village: the most suitable car park will be that of the Sol del Barry or the village hall (just below). This V-shaped plot is not recommended for vehicles that are a little long, such as motorhomes.
  • At the water's edge – to go hiking: la races, and its huge little-known car park, offers plenty of spaces. It will certainly be your ideal starting point.
  • For a picnic and panorama: le Planquette car park combine all these options! However, it will take 5 to 10 minutes to walk to reach the tourist office before starting your discovery of the village.
  • Motorhome friends: to be as close as possible to the village, go rue de l'hiversenq. Access by Sol del Barry square. Attention, we advise you to leave by this same place.
