A charming heritage

Structured around an upper and a lower street, Crupet clings to the steeply sloping hillsides of the rock. The village seems to be asleep in a monotonous slumber that recalls its old mills aligning the narrow streets. Below, a huge but isolated medieval stronghold house stands guard over a body of water.  Above, the church of Saint-Martin and the presbytery hold a conciliatory meeting in front of the Devil’s Grotto. This incredible artificial cave was built over 100 years ago and depicts the life of Saint Anthony of Padua.  All around, the façades of modest sandstone and limestone houses built between the 16th and 19th centuries, courtyard entrances, small gardens, outdoor facilities and paths form the whole village in a delightful authenticity.


A 2 km interpretation tour with educational boards will guide your steps to discover the picturesque charm of the location… Crupet also awakens to the gentle tinkling of the forks of a few restaurants that welcome visitors in a green setting. Art lovers should not miss the ArtPero gallery, which showcases various artists and their works through exhibitions, workshops, meetings, etc.
