Saint-Vincent-de-Barrès Village of great character and « Petite Cité de Caractère »®
Wander around the narrow winding streets of the village of character of Saint Vincent de Barrès and step several centuries back into the Middle Ages.
One example of the time-warp is the old castle courtyard which now houses the village’s Council offices and medical centre. Perched high on its volcanic crag, the village also offers a breath-taking view over the surrounding hills with their unusual geological landforms.
