Ussel tourist information

where to go - what to see - what to do


Ussel is a great base for exploring the many lakes, rivers and springs in the Haute-Correze.  Activities include fishing, kayaking and exploration of the Gorges Chevanon. 

Ussel itself is a medieval town with a rich cultural heritage.  15th-16th century houses nestle alongside St Martin's church and its Romanesque apse.  There are also some noteworthy castles nearby such as Chateau de Saint Dezery.
