From the train station to Manzagol
The old Tacot tramway
Between 1913 and 1959, a tramway called the Tacot operated between Tulle and Ussel, serving Liginiac. The current station is not the Tacot station (which was a little lower) but a station for coaches built on the model of the Tacot stations.
The building is composed of three parts with distinct functions. Its central part dedicated to welcoming passengers is framed by a goods shed with a loading dock and by a large canopy serving as a shelter for passengers.
The Tower of Peyroux
View over the Monts du Cantal
The Puy de Manzagol
The Puy de Manzagol offers a view over the Monts d'Auvergne and the Triouzoune lake.
This is a geological curiosity since it was formed in the Tertiary era at the same time as the Monts du Cantal.
Indeed, the formation of Puy Mary caused vibration and, by pressure, basalt would have risen to this weakened place through a crack, creating this "small" puy.
