Village du Cantal, Pleaux is a former priory taking place between Dordogne and Puy Mary. It is located about forty kilometers from Aurillac, near Chaussenac and Escorailles.
The town was born in the late eighth century around a community of monks. Very old, the city merged in 1973 under the regime of the fusion-association with the communes of Loupiac, Saint-Christophe-the-Gorges and Tourniac. Between the fifteenth and seventeenth century, Pleaux, then very prosperous city, sees the construction of five castles still visible in part on the territory.
Full of charm, the town seduces visitors passing through its architectural heritage, but especially by its unspoiled nature and authentic. Lovers of outdoor living will be able to learn about hiking or other leisure activities, while enjoying the flora and fauna, while gourmets will delight in local specialties such as truffles, pounti, stuffed cabbage. or cheese and Salers meat.
