Prieure d’Aleyrac - MapAleyrac seems to be a truly magical place. It became a ruin
wayback in 1389 but still possesses many notable features
and is located in a wild and beautiful site.

Prieure d’Aleyrac

  • The western facade with its three windows surmounted by a bell tower.
  • The pentagonal apse.
  • Interior ornamentation of the nave and the cornices.

Under the first span of the nave spouts a spring that pilgrims to the site believe to be miraculous especially for the cure of headaches and skin diseases.
