The Puy Bouval with an altitude of 733m is the highest point in the hamlet of Bouval situated in the village of Barriac-les-Bosquets. You can reach it during a walk named the “Puy Bouval” (2h45 – 11km). A panorama table made in lava will help you to find your way about: the Pleaux plateau, the Cantal mountains, the Sancy mountains and the Limousin region. At the top, there is a statue in bronze of the abbot François Filiol, a martyred priest during the French Revolution. Refusing to take an oath on the “Civil Constitution” of the clergy, he was persued and hunt. He tried to hide in Bouval, his native country, but he was denounced and guillotined in 1783 on May 14th on the little square near the apse of Our Lady of Miracles church in Mauriac.
