Trip Planner Europe  /  France  /  Nouvelle-Aquitaine  /  Creuse  /  Crozant
Crozant is a commune in the Creuse department in the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region in France.GeographyA tourism and farming village situated some 20mi northeast of Guéret, on the D72 and by the banks of the river Creuse, the boundary with the department of Indre.This administrative boundary is very old. It approximates to the linguistic boundary between the langue d'oïl and langue d'oc.It also has a geological significance: to the south, the granite foothills of the Massif central, while in the plains to the north begins the limestone of the Paris basin. When the Eguzon dam on the Creuse was built in 1926, the landscape, society and the local economy changed under the water’s influence in just a few years. One has only to see old postcards and the works of Armand Guillaumin, who painted about 140 landscapes, to notice the difference. The moors were maintained by the extensive grazing of sheep and goats, which slowly declined between the two wars and died out completely after 1950. The trend nowadays is the restoration of surrounding ruins, and the forestation of those former natural open spaces.
