    The Towers of Crocq

    Last vestiges of a magnificent 12th-century fortified château, the two towers offer a splendid panorama of the Limousin and Auvergne. Two rooms present a history of the restoration work and host seasonal exhibitions.
  • Heritage site

    St Alvard Chapel

    Dating from the 12th century and restored in the 18th century, the chapel has a bell tower-wall with a triangular gable.
  • Panorama

    Panoramic landscapes

    The circuit offers several viewpoints, including the one at Haut Naberon. The name of the village is a reference to cleared land. 


  1. Go up as far as the towers and then to the cemetery. Then go straight down, as far as the château wall, and follow it to the road (D10).

  3. At the chapel, go down the road and take the first path on the right. At the end of this road, turn left towards the Crocq - Dimpoux road.
  4. Cross the road and go up alongside the wood. Continue to the Urbe crossroads.
  5. Cross the Crocq-Flayat road and take the old Roman road opposite. Continue to the small road that leads to Naberon and turn right to the D 28.
