In this article you will find the practical tips for visiting the village of Turenne in Corrèze, classified among the “most beautiful villages in France”: history, things to see, the restaurant to test in this village.
Turenne is a small village perched on a mound, which I have visited several times.
First of all, it must be said that the village was the capital of a Viscounty who enjoyed in the 18th century an important power and complete autonomy with regard to the crown. His visit is a must when visiting Corrèze.
To start, arriving in Turenne you will have to park your car in the parking lot at the bottom of the village.
You can then walk through its small medieval alleys, look at its many 15th century houses and walk step by step to Turenne Castle.
At the top of the village you can enjoy a remarkable view of the area.
You have two paths to go up to the castle, so I advise you to choose the road that goes gently up to the right and pass in front of the 15th century church.
Once at the top, you can go down the other steeper path that crosses the village!
