A country path
The Templar Commandery
However, in the middle of the Religious Wars, this administrative centre was destroyed. Falling into the hands of a Protestant leader who was taken prisoner, it regained its freedom against the abandonment of Bellechassagne, which was razed to the ground in 1588.
The headquarters was in the centre of the town. Just a few elements are visible: a door lintel of the village hall, the cross in front of the church above the bells and the funeral slab behind the fountain.
The beech wood
As a result of agricultural abandonment on the one hand and landowner awareness-raising campaigns on the other, the landscape has changed over the last century from moorland to heath to planted forests.
It is impossible not to mention Marius Vazeilles who, as a visionary, promoted an economic system based on the complementarity of agriculture and forestry.
The Cantal Mountains
The bread oven
Notice the bread oven at the entrance of the village, which is sometimes re-lit for social events.
- Take the wide path on the right at the end of the village. It joins a road that you need to take on the left.
- At the next crossroads, turn left towards the RD 30 E3. At the departmental road, follow this road on the left for about a hundred metres and take the trail on the right. Follow it to the small village of "Seringour". Turn right on this side road to get back onto the RD 30 E3.
- Take the track on the right towards the small village of "Bos Jean". Follow it straight on for about 2.5 km.
- Take the tarmac road on the right. Go past Le Bouix. At the next crossroads, take a road on the left to get back to the starting point.
