Collonges la Rouge

The medieval turrets and towers of Collonges-la-Rouge define the skyline of this unusual 14th century village. The distinctive deep red sandstone of the buildings (rich in iron oxide) sets it apart from any other and is at its most striking at dusk. The village became a stronghold of the Viscounts of Turenne in the 14th century, one of the largest fiefdoms in France. A wander through the narrow cobbled streets leads to an impressive church, artisanal workshops, lovely restaurants and small boutiques selling local wines and decorative objects. The centre boasts many impressive 15th and 16th century houses such as the Maison de la Sirène, with period interiors and a small mermaid sculpted in a stone outside. A visit to the Château de Vassinhac, owned by the former feudal Lord of the town, is now fully refurbished with antique pieces including the former bed chambers of the famous French writer Colette.

Saint-Pierre-ès-Liens church

Noailhac’s church has a Romanesque choir with arcatures. Its capitals are quite archaic (Adam receiving the apple from Eve, Daniel in the lion’s den). The nave – three 15th century bays – is vaulted with diagonal ribs and surrounded with two chapels, whose keystones bear the Noailles coat of arms. Notice the remarkable 12th century red sandstone baptismal font, and its chessboard decor.
