Located at the boundary between the north-western part of Haute-Loire and the north-eastern part of Cantal, the Alagnon Gorges stretch between the small town of Lempdes-sur-Allagnon and the charming village of Blesle, which are classified among the most beautiful villages in France.
Quiet and relaxing, this deep, scenic valley is a beautiful spot, with its green landscapes and basalt columns. After discovering Blesle and its medieval heritage, you are sure to appreciate a stop by the river for a picnic, a moment of relaxation or a spot of fishing.
On the way to Lempdes-sur-Allagnon, you can admire Léotoing Castle, a medieval fortress in ruins from the 13th century perched on a rocky peak, and its magnificent view over the Alagnon Valley.
The nearby Church of St. Vincent, dating from the 12th century and remodelled in the 15th century, is worth visiting for its sculpted capitals and ancient wall paintings.
