Located at the confluence of the Voueize and Tardes rivers, the city of Chambon-sur-Voueize offers a remarkable granite church of the 11th and 12th centuries. Dedicated to Sainte-Valérie, this imposing abbey church is one of the largest of Limousin, and is a magnificent example of Romanesque art, with its superb three-apse chevet and its two bell towers. Inside, wooden panelling, Saint-Valérie's reliquary-bust and paintings can be admired.

After visiting the church, walkers should not miss going to see the charming old bridge on the Voueize river, a listed construction dating from the 14th century.

Another place not to be missed in the surrounding area, the Voueize gorges which offer picturesque green landscapes.

Additional information
Chambon-sur-Voueize

Located in the heart of the country Combraille On, the turning curves that descend into the valley, lying in bed of greens, discover Chambon-sur-Voueize. At each corner, past Chambon, already known to the Gallo-Roman era, resurfaced and the walker still find traces of past activities: hospital, tanneries, court, jail, headgear ... Houses with roofs of brown tiles huddle around the Abbey Church of Sainte Valerie and give the site a remarkable architectural unity.
