Locality
“The town of Rochechouart is only around 20 minutes drive from Maison Vignoble, situated just over the border of the Dordogne into the Haute-Vienne department of the Limousin. Rochechouart is known as the 'countryside of the meteorite', owing to the fact that one of the largest known meteorites ever to hit Earth smashed into this area 214 million years ago... weighing in at around 6 billion tonnes! Today, you will struggle to find any evidence of where the meteorite landed, but you can visit the Espace Météorite Paul Pellas, a permanent exhibition where you can learn more about this catastrophic event. However, there is far more to Rochechouart than just it's meteorite history - visit and you will discover a beautiful walled town, watched over by the stunning Château de Rochechouart which dates back to the 13th century. Whilst part of the building is taken over by the local council, you can visit the Museum of Modern Art which is housed within the castle and its gardens. The collection of Art is relatively big and there is often a temporary exhibition to view. After admiring the Château and the views of the stunning countryside and strolling through the pretty streets, visit the 11th century Church Saint-Sauveur. The romanesque Church has a remarkable and very unusual twisting spire which was added in the 18th century.”
