Medieval city of Montsalvy - Hikes & walks in Montsalvy

Hello and welcome to Montsalvy! Thanks to this guided tour proposed by the Châtaigneraie Tourist Office, you will be able to discover a medieval city rich in ecclesiastical heritage and southern local history through listening stations. The story begins with the monk Gausbert who founded a church, a hospice and a monastery in the 11th century. At that time the ground was limited by 4 crosses and Saint Gausbert created a saving. A territory ensuring the ecclesiastical immunity to whom it takes refuge! The city takes its name then: Mons salutatis, mount of the salvation, or Mons Salvii, mount of the saved one. The departure of our visit is on the Place du Foirail opposite the castle. Enter the park to listen to the sequence 1.
