  • Visit of Masgot Sunday morning of October 30, 2016. Leave the car 100 meters away from the village and entering Masgot. Beautiful sunny, fall morning a nearly deserted village (not more than a dozen of "visitors"), haven of peace in that day... Walk through the small paths shaded up to the stone on the heights of the village tournadoire. More than the lovely sculptures of granite, is the impression of absolute serenity that touched me. A village where the time stopped in a moment of happiness that seems to always have to last. The visit lasted at most an hour, but must be different in more tourist season with festive entertainment.

  • A place to see if you find it! The signs in the countryside, with a Michelin map and GPS is a little complicated, otherwise the statuary visit is done in an hour. The welcome is friendly. There's a curiosity in the Woods to see nearby allowing you to remain cool and shade in the forest for an extra hour.
