TOWN PRESENTATION

Ancient city founded by the monks of the Abbey of St Martial de Limoges, and counted some 5500 inhabitants, La Souterraine is a small town where life is good. It is a collection of shops and services in the greenery of the countryside Creusoise.

Located at the intersection of highways A20 and N145, served by railway line Paris-Toulouse, La Souterraine is the essential gateway to the Creuse and Limousin.


SIGHTSEEING

Historical stage, the city resonates still not pilgrims since the Middle Ages come to find rest in the shelter of fortifications. Check out the Romanesque-Gothic church, its original Gallo -Roman crypt, the iconic St. John's Gate, the Gate of Puycharraud, his curious lantern of the dead, its old houses Renaissance, the vestiges of the castle of Bridiers.

Also see: a genuine miniature circus, model 300 m², fully animated and accessible for everyone. Cirque Valdi is a work of art created from scratch by the passion of one man, Maurice Masvignier, virtuoso miniature, what is more, amazing storyteller expertise.

Ponds Thatch and Cazine are particularly famous for sport fishing for carp.
