Situated in the Corrèze countryside, Beyssac is home to La Rivière, a former national mare farm (now privately owned) and the Glandier Charterhouse, founded in the early 13th century by the Viscount of Comborn. This was the setting for one of the most famous criminal cases of the 19th century: the Lafarge Affair. Accused of poisoning her husband, a blacksmith at Le Glandier, with arsenic, Marie Capelle Lafarge was convicted of the crime. However, doubts remain as to her guilt.
On the private estate of Les Monts is a stele in memory of Innocent VI, born Etienne Aubert. He was born in Beyssac in the 14th century and was Pope in Avignon.
