Nouveau monde

and the Chapeauroux Viaduct

Le Nouveau-Monde (The New World) owes its existence and its name to the construction in the 19th century of a ground-breaking railway line linking Paris to Marseille. Located on the east bank of the Allier River, at the foot of the protected, listed cliffs of Le Thord, the hamlet looks across to the Chapeauroux Viaduct with its 28 arches.
