Dournazac, chestnut town in Haute-Vienne

Land of tradition, Dournazac is committed to keeping chestnut culture alive and prospering. Moreover, the Dournazac chestnut festival, the last Sunday in October, attracts many visitors around the celebration of the Limousin region and its emblematic fruit. The creation of a conservatory orchard open to the public allows visitors to appreciate the perpetuation of this ancestral art and exceptional heritage. If you pass through Dournazac, do not hesitate to visit the remarkable feudal castle of Montbrun, the castle of Lambertie located in the town of Miallet but only accessible through the town of Dournazac, its church dedicated to Saint-Sulpice whose bell tower is covered with chestnut shingles, the remains of the Thavaud priory, devotional fountains, wells and wash houses, so many witnesses to life in the villages. Dournazac is also a town surrounded by beautiful nature that you can explore thanks to the numerous hiking trails at your disposal, and you can also enjoy a magnificent view by going to the Grand-Puyconnieux site located at an altitude of 498 meters. . In good weather, you can see Limoges, Saint-Junien, Charente Limousine, and even as far as Périgord. Moreover, it is from this point that every year in May many radio enthusiasts try to communicate with the whole world from Limousin.
