Suggestions

This peaceful stroll will be full of surprise: beautiful houses full of character, views over the opposite wooded hills and the hamlet of "la Ville", surrounded by its castle and its chapel, to which you can access thanks to a path lined with box trees. Sauveterre is a region full of prehistoric housing, explored by Laurent Coulonges, archelogist, in the 1920s. He discovered in the Martinet archeological site a new prehistoric culture, famous worldwide, which he called the "Sauveterrien" (-8000 to -7000 BC). Sauveterre-la-Lémance's museum shows the results of his excavations and recounts the hunter-picker men during Prehistory. You can find especially the evolution of hunting techniques, the appearance of bows and arrows. The museum introduces children and adults to ours ancestors' life...
