A majestic natural space extending over 300 m. The cliffside path offers incomparable overhanging views.

The architectural complex was originally an abbey. After widespread degradation, several reconstruction projects were undertaken. Take your time and enjoy the rosettes and stained-glass windows, including those that recall Saint Sour’s legend.

 

Cluzeaux

Several cluzeaux (artificial caves or rock shelters) around the ancient city are open for visit (for free). Cluzeaux are full of mystery and charm: were they dug to protect the population during Viking invasions? … or maybe as a pantry?…
