The Medieval section of Logne

Park your vehicle at the “Ferme de Palogne”. If you feel like a snack before your visit, make a stop at the tavern "Al Gatte d'Or".

You may wish to start your day with a visit of the fortified castle. A ten minute walk along a forest path leads you to the Medieval site. Throughout your visit (with a guide or an audio guide), you will enjoy the exceptional panorama, the mysterious subterranean passage, and the search for the Golden Goat and its treasure.

Upon your return to Palogne, you’ll appreciate a little break at the terrace of the tavern, with its home-made specialities and playground for children.

Next you can watch the show of the "Eagles of Logne" : owls, buzzards, falcons, vultures, eagles... The more than 30 birds of prey will remind you of the passion for hunting and falconry of the lords of old.

You will then be able to explore all the resources of the Medieval section of Logne: the archaeological museum of the fortified castle is open till 6:00 PM. You’ll have plenty of time to discover the daily life of the lords and knights of the Middle Ages and, before them, their Merovingian ancestors, the first inhabitants of the site, who lived more than 1500 years ago.

Before leaving Logne, don’t miss the Romanesque chapel of Vieuxville, a vestige of the former church of the 12th century and the resurgence of the Lembrée, where the stream flows out of deep caves and feeds the valley and the village with a clear and abundant water supply throughout the year.
