The fortified village of Mareughol

Credit : N. Dutranoy PAH Val d'Allier Sud

At the south of the fertile plains of the Lembron, and protected from the winds by the relief, Mareughol benefits from a favourable microclimate very close to the mountain. The village has a fort, built around the church in the Hundred Years’ War period. The wall of the village, really imposing, is a vast quadrilateral of 65m, adjoined on the corners of the circular towers and presenting surrounding walls of 10m high. Inside this fortification in a very homogeneous basalt, most likely constructed rapidly, the little streets of the medieval district are like a labyrinth around a really dense assembly.

To discover: the fortified village (14th – 15th centuries), the Romanesque church Saint Victor and Sainte Couronne and its furniture (historical monument), the crosses of the 17th century: stripped cross, the cross of Saint-Rock, the group washing place-fountain-trough-laundry room (Mareughol has the chance to have kept intact its entire heritage dedicated to the uses of water).
