Around Xaintrie Noire (Correze)


Xaintrie Noire is a natural region delimited by the Maronne, Cère and Dordogne rivers. Xaintrie Noire is characterized by a rugged terrain, with granite plateaus cut by deep gorges. The soils are poor and acidic, which explains the presence of a dense forest, composed mainly of oaks, beeches and chestnut trees. The history of Xaintrie Noire dates back to prehistoric times. It was inhabited by the Gauls, the Romans and the Visigoths. During the Middle Ages, the region was an important center of wool and leather production.
