Crupet: at the whim of its windmills
In the hollow of the narrow valley of the Crupet and its tributaries, the modest beauty of the stone houses, gracefully nestled in a peaceful and undulating environment, will charm your visual senses.
Enjoy Crupet on this pleasant 2.6-kilometre walk.
You can admire this pretty sandstone and limestone habitat along a high street and a low street linked by picturesque paths, clinging to the steep slopes carved into the rock. Everything is delightful and authentic: the facades, gables and outbuildings, the courtyard entrances, the gardens, the exterior fittings… The medieval fortified house rises proudly in the middle of a shallow lake.
A little further up, the beauty of the site of the Saint-Martin church and its presbytery will capture your attention. The parish priest Gérard has prepared a surprise for you: an incredible artificial grotto retracing the life of Saint Anthony of Padua. It has attracted thousands of visitors for over 100 years. This place of worship is also known as the Devil’s Cave.
