Morning: discover the village

To start the day, we chose to wander through the narrow streets and lanes of this picturesque town. A short climb to the top of the tower gives us an uninterrupted view of the famous twisted bell tower. Download the Wivisite audio tour with whom we discover the city's rich heritage and history.

In summer, the Museum of Popular Arts and Traditions of the Haute VézèreThey show us the daily life and skills of centuries gone by.

For the little ones, drop in to the Tourist Office and ask to Treignou to show us around the city.

Then we'll head for the banks of the Vézère, to the most picturesque part of the village, for a moment dedicated to culture à la Vieux Pont art gallery. A 16th-century house where the works of professional and amateur painters and sculptors are exhibited.
