    Then you will reach the neighbouring causse by walking in a setting of hedged farmland, passing at the foot of the Peyrouse castle (18th century) and reaching the old quarries, the highest point of the hike where you will enjoy the panorama.
    Finally, as you return to the valley of the Tourmente, you will enjoy the views of the village of Turenne, with its slate roofs.
