Thanks to the great Binocle mole, we can understand the long history of our planet easier.

Landscapes and creations bring us at the heart of discovery. Surprises abound such as Giant Basalt who rises from the lava flow.

From Place du Cardinal Verdier (outside the church), follow the red mole onto the footpath « la Fage »( 1h00 – 2,6km ) then the green mole onto the footpath « la coulée de Lave » (1h30 – 3,3km)

Points of interest

  • The place is ideal for picnics, barbecues on the banks of the pond with views of Monts du Cantal along the footpath “La Fage” and Binocle the red mole.
  • Fantasy walks: fire, wind, water, stone, magic forest… the elements of the Earth tell their stories as if they had a soul of their own when walking along these fantasy walks starting from the villages of Brommat, Lacroix-Barrez, Mur-de-Barrez, Murols, Taussac. For 10 years, the inhabitants of the Carladez village in northern Aveyron have been very creative and free which makes the fantasy walks and the footpaths very lively. They are free of charge and open year round.
