Argentat and the Tours de Merle (32km)

Argentat was once a major port from which barges took wood all the way down the Dordogne river to Bordeaux.

The Tours de Merle are one of the most important sites in the Correze. During the Hundred Years' War, they were at the frontier between England (Aquitaine) and France (The Auvergne).
