This hike, with its incredible name, is made for lovers of landscapes and especially heritage! In 9 days of walking and over 163 km, you’ll pass through the Gorges de l’Allier between Langeac and Saint-Arcons-d'Allier and then enter the Livradois Forez Natural Park to reach the medieval village of Allègre, then the Chaise-Dieu and its must-see abbey. Next are the hilly paths along the Senouire, with the castle of Domeyrat or the octagonal bell tower of the church of Lavaudieu.
