Lormes / Narvau waterfall

Once upon a time ...

Overlooking the surroundings, on Mount Saint Alban, the Church of Lormes dominates the town and covers it with its protective shade.
The medieval footprint is always present. It will open the doors of another era. You will see charming shops and beautiful squares.
It is by leaving the main streets that you will have a glimpse of what may have been the fortified city of yesteryear. Behind doors are hiding wash-houses and other secrets. Listen, the sound of water will guide you in your research.
Through the Tourist Information Office, you can get a map of the city and explanations. If you are interested, "Godefroy the Lormois", Lord Knight will guide young and old through an E-Hike in the city and you will relive his memories and epics.

... Stone

In summer, enjoy guided walks to discover Lormes in every corner and pierce all its mysteries. From the panorama, visible from the foot of the Church, to the squares full of life, Lormes will show you all its facets.
At noon, there are many options available for lunch. The restaurants will welcome you. It's up to you to choose the one that will best awaken your taste buds in a journey to the world of the senses. In the afternoon, join the Gorges of Narvau: a magical and natural place not far from the city.
Follow the trails to discover this site. If you pass near the rocks, listen. You may hear some whispers. Not far from you is the Fairy Cave. Only the bravest ones will dare to stop there. On these cliffs, you can also practice climbing. Put on your harnesses to challenge the heights.

... The waves

Do not forget to continue your tour to the pond of Goulot where other activities will embellish your day. Enjoy a refreshing bath while your children have fun in the play areas provided for them. Looking for another family activity?
From mini-golf to Canoe-Kayak, to the health trail, find the activity that will please you and ensure you a moment of unique complicity. A pontoon provided for fishing will allow amateurs to discover the fish that inhabit the pond.
The sun, while lying down, will be reflected on the pond in a flamboyant patchwork.
