Notre Dame de Massillergue trail
Under the porch of Coupiac church is the Romanesque tympanum of Notre-Dame de Massillergues. A little way away from the village, is the location of a church which no longer exists and where now stands a contemporary chapel. Between the two sites there is a pleasant family loop that runs its way through a green forested setting from where you never really lose sight of the castle towers!
- From the carpark of the Post Office square, walk to the entrance of the castle. Once you are in front of the entrance, walk down the street to the right.
- Once you’ve reached the square in the town centre, walk straight ahead up to the cross. Cross the street and go up the stairs.
- At the top of the stairs, turn to the left then to the right by a hairpin bend. Follow the rising path up to the road, then turn left.
- Just by the water tower, turn left. Follow the road up to the hairpin bend, then take a path on the left towards Massillergues. Follow the path up to the chapel.
- Once you’ve reached the chapel, retrace your steps back to the path you took on the way there for 160 m, then leave it and take to the right a descending trail.
- Walk along the brook until Coupiac.
Box tree moths are active from May to October. During the caterpillar phase, they feed on the leaves of box trees. They crawl down trees and move on long silken threads, although these threads are annoying when hiking they do not pose any health risk
