Arts & Culture
Historically part of the Bas Berry, Boussac has always been a territory of confluence notably between the Auvergne, the Limousin and the Berry through its weekly markets. The Jean de Brosse Château is one of the major elements of local heritage. Guided tours, but also discovery walks around the fortress, allow visitors to discover, among other things, old Boussac thanks to its pedestrianised circuit. Walking trails leaving from Boussac (for walkers and mountain bikers) allow you to discover an unspoilt nature and an astonishing small-scale heritage

The castle of Villemonteix is both powerful and elegant, a typical example of the end of the middle Ages with its central keep, its round path and its pepperbox towers. Elegant thanks to the discreet exterior fittings of the 18th century, the carved gargoyles and dovecote. The current owners gave life to the castle after a long period of abandonment. The castle houses period furniture, woodwork, paintings, porcelain (Sèvres, Berry, Limoges)... as well as an exceptional double Pleyel by Béatrice de Camondo and a rich collection of tapestries from the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries by Aubusson, Felletin, Flanders, Beauvais and Gobelins.

Giant pebbles. A sacrificial altar, the Dieu du Tonnerre (God of Thunder) stones and those of La Guerre (the War), La Bascule (the Seesaw), Les Pains de sucre (the Sugar Loaves)… the Pierres Jaumâtres are a place of legends par excellence. At the summit of Mount Barlot, around 40 enormous granite blocks surge up and lean together at impossible angles. An amusing family outing to see, imagine, climb, touch… Careful though: the fairies are never far away. But don't worry, they enjoy being visited!.
