WelcomeMontayral, dans les Combes de Bazérac et d'Escure

Plum tree orchards and vineyards alternate with wooded hills and arid pechs of the Quercy gates along this circuit. You can also discover the Lagrolère astronomical observatory. The association which occupies it, Gap-Est 47 exists since more than 20 years. At the beginning, the club met in premises lent by the town hall of Montayral to build its observation equipment. As the group of volunteers with a passion for astronomy continued to grow, they decided to create activities to introduce groups of individuals and schools to their passion. Little by little the association acquired observation instruments and then the observatory was built in the commune of Montayral with the support of the community of communes of Fumélois-Lémance and the Conseil Général.
