Rock of Roqueprins

Discover the Rock of Roqueprins on the Causse de Sauveterre highland

The Rock of Roqueprins

The cliffs of Causse de Sauveterre highland offer us a multitude of views. Rising like surrounding walls encircling this wild territory, the cliffs plunge almost directly into the Tarn river in the South and rise above the fertile lands of the Lot river Valley and the Urugne Valley at the North-West.

The "Rocher de Roqueprins" is the cliff which overlooks the village of La Canourgue. The "enclosure rock" allows you to admire a sublime scenic view: in the foreground the Lot river Valley and the Urugne Valley, as well as the foothills of the Causse de Sauveterre highland, a few kilometers further the foothills of the Aubrac plateau and then the Aubrac and Margeride mountains.

Discover the exceptional panorama by going to the Rocher de Roqueprins, on foot from La Canourgue or Rougès-Parets, or by car on the way out of Rougès-Parets (in any case, follow the signs “Via Ferrata” (the path is unpaved.) We can read the landscape that stretches before our eyes thanks to the orientation table. The place is marked with a monumental cross which lights up at nightfall. It can be seen from miles away, and it shines like a Sauveterre lighthouse.
