Knowing a destination well means knowing its people well. In Terres Gaillardes, we are lucky to have residents who are passionate about their history, their heritage, their village, their traditions and their know-how. And as they are of a generous nature, they want to share all this knowledge during enlightened visits.

Since 2021, Brive Tourisme has wanted to connect these enthusiasts with visitors wishing to know our territory in more depth. Together, they can exchange, learn and discover information in a very friendly atmosphere.

This new concept of free tours led by real Gaillards can address several themes: local fauna and flora, know-how, small heritage...
