Other things to note
Marsat, a small village nestled on the slopes is built at the end of the lava flow of the Nugère: where the springs spring! And in Marsat, the water flows in abundance ... The village was organized around its convent and its medieval citadel, of which there remain today two towers. Marsat is a Marian sanctuary, among the oldest in France. Its church contains a black Madonna in majesty of the XIIth century. Against the church, a part of the cloister is still visible.
