An impressive belvedere with views of the Dordogne and Diège gorges, the famous site of Saint-Nazaire, in Corrèze, is located 12 kilometres to the west of Bort-les-Orgues, in the municipality of Saint-Julien-près-Bort.

Nestling amid the greenery, this remarkable place is named after a legend: St. Nazarius is said to have driven the devil from the place. He left a forked hoof print on a rock as he fled in long strides… The statue of the saint, erected in 1901, still watches over the site, and a pilgrimage in his honour was organised every September along the Way of the Cross that ends opposite the abyss.

The pleasant and restful site of Saint-Nazaire is easily accessible on foot: you have to allow for 15 minutes' walk from the car park to reach the belvedere. Once you arrive, you can enjoy a wonderful view of the confluence of the Dordogne and the Diège! A peaceful and verdant setting, ideal for a picnic in the countryside…
