The charming village of Veauce, nestling at the heart of the peaceful Bourbonnais countryside, invites lovers of built heritage to discover its two beautiful listed historic monuments: the Church of the Holy Cross, in the Auvergne Romanesque style, and the 11th-19th-century castle surrounded by a huge woodland park.
Mixing medieval architecture – with its five towers and covered round-way – and the Renaissance style, Veauce Castle is said to be haunted by the ghost of Lucy, a young woman who died tragically there five centuries ago and who, legend has it, wanders around the heights of the castle on certain nights... Inside, you can see the arms gallery, painting gallery and stained glass gallery on a guided tour.
