Perched on the rocky peak from which it takes its name, Montpeyroux overlooks the Allier Valley. This small fortified village is built from local arkose sandstone, giving it a surprising "coppery" luminosity.

From atop its Romanesque keep, an excellent example of military architecture in Montpeyroux, Auvergne during the 12th and 13th centuries. You can overlook the village’s rooftops from a height of more than 30 m (98 ft) and take in the breathtaking view. Visually impaired visitors can discover the village thanks to its tactile model and the "sensory tour" specially prepared for them.


Don't miss:
