The remarkable architecture of the houses, the fountains of Buzou and Malecargue and the passage on the mythical way of St Jacques de Compostela contribute to the interest of this walk which takes place on the Causse de Limogne.

Many villages in the Causse de Limogne have a so-called “butterfly” washhouse. They owe their name to the very particular shape of their washing stones, assembled in pairs and inclined in the shape of a “V”.
Although they have lost their primary vocation as places of work where the washerwomen met during the big washes, the water points that constitute them have become “wild” environments.
One can observe a whole small fauna there.
