This town located at 25 km from the campsite to the south is known for its dam on the Dordogne built in the fifties: The lake formed by this barrier is huge, with a surface of about 1400 hectares, suitable for swimming, fishing and water sports. The impressive basaltic columnar jointing (height 80 metres) overlooks the city: Superb views of the Puy de Sancy. The museum recalls the tannery industrial past of Bort, now supplanted by Ussel, of the Corrèze subprefecture northwest. Eastward you can visit the Cézallier plateau through the gorges de la Rhue.
And southward There is the Cantal: The medieval village of Salers and the Puy Mary are also well worth a visit (at one hour drive).
