Tourism: Meymac

The origins differ but life centres around the impressive St-André abbey – St-Léger church (11th and 12th centuries) of Romanic Limousin style. Nowadays it contains a Virgin with Child, the bust reliquary of St-Léger, a wooden and wrought iron lectern, a copy of the Black Virgin and a baroque organ.
3 great names to understand Meymac history:
Saint-Léger, martyr bishop, traditionally celebrated the 1st Sunday of October and he watch over inhabitants of Meymac from the Grand’Rue. We award the power to heal and to protect from the madness to him;
Jean Gaye-Bordas, founder of “Meymac-près-Bordeaux” wine trade. His castle “Moines-Larose” can be seen near the abbey. We owe him the enrichment of the city which results in the construction of a set of rich houses with turrets and tree-filled gardens;
Marius Vazeilles, general warden of waters and forests. He is responsible for reforestation of the Plateau de Millevaches, archeologist and politician. His collections are collected to the museum which bears his name in the center of the city.
