A splendid carved cross, a picnic and a view!

Save to my Account

The tiny village of Bassignac-le-Haut is located on the southern shoulder of the Dordogne river in the département of the Corrèze.

Outside the lovely Romanesque church stands the main reason folks come here – a 16th century carved limestone covered wayside cross. Each side of the shaft is carved with scenes of the life of Christ and is a very unusual sight.

Don’t miss the wonderful viewpoint just north of the village on the D13 where the meandering nature of the Dordogne can be appreciated.

Tip: there is a little park forming part of the village green which is an ideal spot for a picnic!

Also check out the entries on the Upper Dordogne Valley and the Dordogne Gorges.
