S'émerveiller dans le Haut Limousin

Dans le Haut-Limousin, on se relaxe ! On vit au rythme de la nature et des nombreux festivals qui animent l’été. Et la journée, on part dans les Monts de Blond, à la découverte d’un territoire féérique peuplé de dolmens et autres pierres à légende. Sans oublier de s’arrêter à Mortemart, un des "plus beaux villages de France", et au Dorat, petite cité de caractère.

À voir, à faire

This Ethnographical and Archaeological museum is located in the historical center of Châteauponsac. The museum was founded in 1942 and set up in a former Benedictine priory restored in 1974. In addition to the permanent exhibition, every year, the museum holds an annual temporary thematic exhibition in an old traditional house "la Maison du Terroir", located at the corner of Saint Thyrse square. The museum also hosts free conferences throughout the year. In the 18 rooms of this museum, one can witness C19th everyday life in this area known as the "Basse Marche". You can see the living room of a traditional house, an exhibition showing a Limousin wedding, old pictures of the area, etc… The collections within the museum are exceptional. Crafts and traditional professions from the period are the main focus of the exhibition. Thanks to various reconstructed lifelike scenes, like the shoemaker’s workshop and the local kitchen, one can discover daily rural life in the Limousin in the 19th century. Other rooms present the history of Châteauponsac since prehistoric times and display Gallo-roman remains. Many minerals and fossils are also on display. Pictures were given by the Association Notre Terroir.

The “Roman” bridge that crosses the Gartempe River in the direction of Saint-Pardoux was built at the beginning of the 17th century. It is based on an older bridge from the 11th century that was about to collapse and built using stones from gallo roman remains. There was certainly a bridge at this site during the gallo roman period because there is a roman road close to it; it may have been a wooden bridge.
