Ambiance

Under the porch of Coupiac church is the Romanesque tympanum of Notre-Dame de Massillergues. A little way away from the village, is the location of a church which no longer exists and where now stands a contemporary chapel. Between the two sites there is a pleasant family loop that runs its way through a green forested setting from where you never really lose sight of the castle towers!

Advice

Box tree moths are active from May to October. During the caterpillar phase, they feed on the leaves of box trees. They crawl down trees and move on long silken threads, although these threads are annoying when hiking they do not pose any health risk
