The Mystery of the Black Pond (short cut)
Church and Château of Saint-Victour
The château, the oldest parts of which seem to date back to the 15th century, comprises two main buildings built at right angles. The north building was flanked by two circular towers, which were demolished during the Revolution. The second dwelling to the west was also flanked by a large tower.
- Departure from in front of the church. Go back to the D 979. At the crossroads, turn left and drive along the departmental road. 200 metres further on, turn right onto a slightly sloping path. A few metres further on, at the Y-junction, go straight on, ignoring a path on your right. Having crisscrossed the undergrowth, the route leads to a trail lined with dry stone walls.
- At the crossroads, turn left, leaving a farmhouse on the right. The path goes down into a valley then skirts the edge of a wood. At the intersection, turn right and go through the village of Barbazanges.
- At the crossroads, take the path opposite, which slopes to the right to reach the banks of the Etang Noir. Go around to the left of the lake. Cross the dike. Continue as far as the road and turn left to return to the D 979 passing in front of the town hall of Saint-Victour. Cross the departmental road and go down to the church.
