Things to see and do

Besse-et-Saint-Anastaise: Village of Art and History. Medieval and Renaissance Besse-et-Saint-Anastaise reflects a rich architectural and historical past. Narrow, cobbled streets, shops, mansions of the 12th and 16th centuries, belfry listed building are the main witnesses. Linked to the history of France and the monarchy (Queen Margot has left its mark), the city bessarde has long been one of the strongholds of the Medicis.
