Unique feelings! Forests, pastures and burons, typical shelters of
Shepherds, are divided the space on the tray of Aubrac. Of a height

Since Chaudes-Aigues and his hot waters in 82°C, borrow the road of
Laguiole. Just a step from the village, you can admire the Castle of Couffour
Sheltering the restaurant of the famous leader double studed Serge Vieira. The famous guide is worth seeing as would say!

Direction Saint Rémy de Chaudes-Aigues at the moment. The landscape opens, the plateau begins to offer his area. Since Saint Rémy de Chaudes-Aigues, in particular in front of the Romanesque church in the bell tower with comb in four arches, admire meadows crossed by the sinuous river of Bès, paradise of the fishermen. By continuing your road, a passage by the Rock of the Virgin in Roche-Canilhac will offer you another surprising panorama.
The next stage of this périble leads you to Saint-Urcize, village raised on a basaltic rock dominating the valleys of the Miserable wretch and the Bès. The old houses, the narrow alleys, the places decorated with fountains, the vestiges of fortifications and the ruins of the former fort give to the city a medieval character and give evidence of its very former origin. The magnificent Romanic church Saint-Peter/Saint Michel du XIIème century, one of the most beautiful of Haute-Auvergne, invites you in the pondering: limp in comb and bell of 1583 (one of the most former of France), ambulatory bent in quarter circle, frescoes of time, incredible stained-glass windows, chalice ...
