  • Medieval Fortress, worth a visit, Polignac is a lovely little quiet Town / village in the Loire valley
  • Memories of a place full of history
  • excellent stop on the way to Le Puy. Very interesting history.

  • Its impressive silhouette is seen from afar, and it is blown away by approaching the city to discover more closely before access to the site and at the top of the Dungeon. 360 ° views are wonderful (the Mézenc - Le Puy en Velay - Velay - the Plains and valleys, mountains). The remains leave us the feeling of a castle once monumental and breathtaking. It takes 1 hour to visit everything. The site is not accessible to people with reduced mobility. Take the time to stroll the streets of the city and discover the beautiful church St. Martin de Polignac. Free parking is located at the bottom of the Church, side cemetery.
