Carrières de Guizengeard (36,5km)

From 1972 to 2013 the quarries of Guizengeard were the place of exploitation of clay and kaolin. They also bear the traces of older human occupations. Since the closure, nature has reclaimed its rights.

You will be able to stop to visit the old medieval fortress of Montguyon, the Roman church of St Martin d’Ary, the castle of the Magdeleine in Chevanceaux, the abbey church of Baignes Ste Ragonde as well as the castle of Barbezieux among others…
