Espace EDF Truyère de Couesque

Tout aussi hors du commun, mais plus terre à terre, est la visite de l’espace EDF de Couesques où vous apprendrez tout sur le fonctionnement des centrales hydroélectriques. Presque de la science fiction !

Vous pourrez faire une escapade romantique au lac de Sarrans. Montez au belvédère (belvédère du Bousquet côté Sainte-Geneviève-sur-Argence) où un panorama fantastique sur les gorges de la Truyère et le lac vous attend.

Les gorges de la Truyère et le Carladez sont aussi parsemés de petit patrimoine comme le moulin de Burée ou l’église et la croix d’Orlhaguet, ou encore la forge de Murols que vous trouverez très photogénique.
