The office de tourisme in the town's main car park has leaflets available in various languages detailing the route to follow, and the features to be looked at. Principal amongst them is the "Collegiale" church with the relics of St Leonard (Patron Saint of prisoners, and also said to "cure" barren women!). Also the former house (now a museum) of scientist Gay-Lussac. Various other old buildings. On the outskirts of town, the Historail (railway!) museum.
There are no dangers here .... BUT: Make shure that you have co-drivers which share the same interests than you! My sister and her collegue wanted to go while I wanted to stay a little bit longer ... because the town is located on a hill and there were lots of interesting things to photograph for a photo-addicted person ...
:-)) Travelling with the wrong co-drivers can be very dangerous ! :-((
A camera loaded with film or digital one is very recommendable!
Miscellaneous: "Pack" some more time when going through this area! It is just wonderful and there are so many interesting villages and towns on the route from Limoges to Clermont-Ferrand .... and at least these two cities are also worth to see!
If you ask me this place is a "off-the-beathen-path"-place itself. It is such a georgeous area and this is not the only lovely place. There are many places like this on the route from Limoges to Clermot-Ferrand.
Check it out when in the central part of France!
If you are touring from Limoges to Clermont-Ferrand by car, you will pass this wonderful area. Take some time and stop here ......
.... and take some more time than we took. I wanted to stay a little bit longer, but I had some very unpleasent "co-drivers" on board ...
