Les Cars Gallo-Roman ruins
Site Gallo-Roman des Cars is one of the best Gallo-Roman archaeological sites of Limousin..
Between moors and forests, on the Plateau de Millevaches, granite blocks tell us a 2000 years old story!
The Gallo-Romans came to settle in Haute-Corrèze in the 2nd century A.D. But who were they? How did they live here?
Clues are hidden in the thousand-year-old stones : the plan of a villa, enormous bath-tub, large mausoleums... Your imagination runs wild, your archaeologist's soul awakens!
This site was rediscovered by Marius Vazeilles in the early 20th century.
You can see archaeological pieces at Marius Vazeilles Archaeology and Heritage museum in Meymac : smallshop, bar with terrace with the Association du Bac des Cars
The site is open all year round for self-guided tours.
Throughout the summer (from 1 July to 31 August), free guided tours are offered, a bar with terrace to have a drink, a small shop where you can buy local products, a reception where you can get advice on the surrounding tourist sites, family games on the Gallo-Roman theme.
The Millevaches Regional Nature Park
Located on the watershed of the Adour-Garonne and Loire-Bretagne basins, the Regional Natural Park has thousands of springs and rivers (Vézère, Creuse, Corrèze, Vienne...) and is home to peat bogs, moors, forests and meadows.
The Longeyroux peat bog, 15 km northwest of Meymac, is an exceptional reservoir of biodiversity.
The Millevaches Regional Natural Park is home to unique fauna and flora: otters, pearl mussels, wetland azure, linnet, white-tailed eagle, viviparous lizard, etc.
It is also a staging area for migratory birds. There are 12 species of birds; red-backed shrike, European nightjar, woodlark, grey crane, etc.
The flora offers great diversity: heather moorland, sphagnum moss or drosera..and much more.
A dense woodland with deciduous and coniferous trees that creates a heterogeneous landscape. An astonishing and unmissable discovery.

Its size, the diversity of its flora and fauna and its unusual landscapes, make the Longeyroux peat bog one of the Plateau de Millevaches’s nature treasures.

One day, Martine slipped on the wet rocks and drowned in the Tine waterfall!
