The old town centre is perched on a hillock whose profile is recognizable from a far. Reaching the top at 284m, there is an ideal place for resting. A wooden terrace, benches and tables for a picnic welcome you. Enjoy the panorama of city rooves, hills and downs of the surrounding picturesque countryside.
This view-point is located on top of a rocky outcrop, where the Lord of Gourdon had the first keep built in the 9th C.
From 1619 onwards the castle fortress was dismantled as punishment to the lord of Gourdon, for having supported Marie de Medici against the king Louis XIII.
The earthenware table of orientation goes back to 1934.
