Trip Planner: Europe / France / Nouvelle-Aquitaine / Creuse / Franseches / Sightseeing / Les Amis de la Pierre de Masgot
Les Amis de la Pierre de Masgot is a 19th-century village that was transformed by stonemason Francois Michaud into a sculptural garden filled with granite animals, human figures, and decorative forms. Through his time, skill, and dedication, Michaud turned a common village into a museum of three-dimensional art. Here you will find statues carved into walls, roofs, and gates.

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.View original

Zéé da FonsecaNice. €12 for a family 2 adults and 2 children for the entrance to the village halloween special. And it was great! Bravo for the quality of the workshops and the staging. A late show well in the subject. Only flat and good for the organizers is waiting for visits. Do and redo. ....View original

Jean-Baptiste HattéA 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.View original
