The Cross of Mission
Turn left, walk 140m and turn right after the mission cross - hamlet Les Petites barns - where you will see pretty stone houses. This cross dates from 1864, this monument was erected in memory of a mission, after the revolutionary turmoil, where it was necessary, for the representatives of the Roman catholic church, to restore the religious practice. In general it bears an inscription (that of the preacher) and the date of this mission. At the crow's feet on the right, take the road to Civrac. Continue on this little used and sometimes shaded country road to the hamlet of Cantérane, rue des Abbés Paul. On this route between the months of March and May, you will have the opportunity to observe wild orchids and the Fritillary Guinea fowl (see photo), a dark pink flower which only grows in a humid environment. . Toxic, it was used in particular to repel moles. Turn right at the rue des Aulaniers crossing. At the end of the street, at the give way, turn right – rue Charles Plumeau. Attention this road although limited to 70 km/h remains dangerous. You will take the first paved road on your left located at the heart of the bend. Walk along the edge of the wood then along the vines until the next crossing. Continue straight on the path opposite, a path that will turn left at the edge of the vines then continue on the dirt road. At the end of the path turn right to continue on a paved road.
