The GR 470 Sources and Gorges de l'Allier goes up the Allier river to its source at Le Moure de la Gardille.

While roaming, you will discover wild and varied landscapes, from the bottom of the valley to the plateaus of Gévaudan and Velay, when the path splits away from the river. In this area, Atlantic salmon spawn. Great efforts are being made to strengthen its population.

You will also discover Romanesque art such as the Basilica of Saint Julien in Brioude or churches and chapels, many of which are beautifully decorated with wall paintings.

Your itinerary, after Le Moure de la Gardille, will take you to La Bastide Puylaurent. There, the Cévenol train will allow you to discover the wild valley again by taking you back to your starting point.
