In the Parc Naturel Régional des Volcans d’Auvergne, surrounded by the communes of Ségur-les-Villas, Saint-Bonnet de Condat and Saint-Hyppolite, lies the charming and bustling village of Saint-Saturnin.
By vélorail, the magnificent scenery stretches as far as the eye can see and takes you through the mountain pastures, ending at the 201 m long, curved Saint-Saturnin viaduct, with its ten arches dating from the early 20th century and a height of 36 metres.
It takes you across the Santoire, a tributary of Dordogne, and Saint-Saturnin reveals a vast and remarkable religious heritage with its 12th century church, its listed porch and its beautiful roadside cross.
