Village | Arlempdes | Plus Beau Village de France

Arlempdes, village on the banks of the Loire, labeled Most Beautiful Village of France.
Volcanic site with lava flows, basalt organs and ruins of the castle (XNUMXth-XNUMXth-XNUMXth centuries) perched on top of a rocky outcrop. Restored Roman castle chapel. XNUMXth century church with comb bell tower with XNUMXth century pietà. XNUMXth century carved stone cross.

A picturesque village dominated by one of the first castles on the banks of the Loire. The remains of the medieval fortress appear like a true sentinel of the gorges…

Arlempdes offers to those who discover it, at the bend of a bend, a real spectacle. Standing at the top of a volcanic peak that the Loire meanders around, the village reveals the remains of its castle, the first on the river from its source.
